  1. Cook pasta according to pack instructions, drain and rinse the pasta and return to the pot.

  2. Meanwhile, add the soaked or boiled cashews, water, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice to a blender. Blend on medium-high for 2 mins. Add a touch more water if needed. Adjust seasoning to taste

  3. Warm olive oil in a non-stick pan over a medium-low heat. Arrange the Gro sausage pieces in a single layer and cook until golden brown, about 3 mins. Flip the pieces over and cook on the other side for 2-3 mins, then turn off the heat.
