Tequila Tomato Pasta

Super easy, dairy-free tequila tomato pasta, creamy and so delicious! The sauce can be made in one skillet, in under 30 minutes total – so much yes.

I also love this because its made mostly of major pantry staples – so this is something I’m always ready to make at home. You can definitely mix and match within flavors, pasta shapes and more. You can also add in any leftover vegetables in the fridge that need a little extra love.
