3 Over a medium heat in the same frying pan as before, add the mushrooms, another 1 to 2 teaspoons of the Cajun seasoning (depending on your heat preference), and a bit more broth as needed. Stir to combine and cook for 3 minutes. Pour in the 1 cup of broth and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium low, add the 3 tablespoons of Cashew Sour Cream, stirring until combined. Then add the bell peppers and tomatoes back into the sauce. taste and add more Cajun seasoning, salt or pepper to taste Stir and cook on high for 5 to 7 more minutes allowing it to cook down. Stir in the pasta (or zucchini noodles). Top with the green onions to serve.

NOTE: If you prefer a less spicy pasta, simply use less Cajun seasoning than recommended above. To make the Cashew Sour Cream simply add 1 cup of soaked and drained cashews, 1/2 a cup of water, 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice and salt to taste to a high speed blender for 3 to 4 minutes until creamy.
