Love creamy pasta dishes – the raw way – and my fave is this creamy spinach mushroom pasta!!  If you have never tried it before, you may be in for a surprise. Feel free to change the herbs, leave out or even change the veggies if you are not into mushrooms. You could use red peppers, zucchini or kale, for example.
