Creamy Lemon Ziti With Roasted Asparagus [Vegan]

This velvety sauce is thick and creamy and super flavorful. And you know what I’m going to say next, right? It’s dairy free! In addition, the sauce is also oil-free, soy free, and nut free. It only takes seven ingredients, all of which you likely already have in your pantry/fridge, and less than 5 minutes to make this tangy sauce. Made with nutrient rich white beans for creaminess and the addition of vitamin heavy asparagus, basically, you want to eat up because this is one healthy dish!
