Cashew and Wild Garlic Alfredo With Rigatoni

A simple but appealing dish. The sauce can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge. Remove the wild garlic and you have a simple white sauce base which you can use in many different dishes.

When to eat

We recommend eating this dish from March to June. The wild garlic season in the UK is very short, but not to be missed.
