Creamy tomato sauce

This is a quick and easy recipe that freezes well, courtesy of my mom!  We made this over the weekend while I was home and I just knew you all would love it!

The ingredients:
  

  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 12 oz jar roasted red peppers
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Now the fun part, put it all in your food processor and blend until creamy.  I strongly suggest using a high powered processor to break down those cashews!

  
What you are left with is a creamy (almost dip like) consistency that is perfect for topping squash noodles!  Let me know if you try it!
