Creamy Mushroom and Spinach Linguine (dairy-free)

This week feels like a long one for me. The UK went into the second lockdown last week, the clocks went back a good two weeks ago and the days are just getting shorter and darker, so I needed something to lift my spirits. A warm, cosy but nutritious meal. Something creamy but dairy-free (I can't really do cream right now), with lots of colourful veggies, and PASTA. So this Creamy Mushroom and Spinach Linguine (dairy-free) was born. I'm sure this is all you need on those busy weeknights, too. It’s creamy but light, full of flavour and texture, colourful and ready in 20 minutes! Need I say more? Oh yes: Buon appetito! 😊

Tip: Don’t have linguine at home? You can use spaghetti or tagliatelle instead.
