No bake Oreo and Nutella cheesecake

I saw peanut butter Oreo and I immediately thought of cheesecake. I had these jars especially for creamy desserts. I also had Nutella, the idea of a No bake Oreo and Nutella cheesecake was the most obvious choice.
I tried a new recipe of cheesecake with mascarpone and soft cheese. I used the light versions and I think it was delicious, I don’t think it needed the extra richness of the full-fat versions of the cheese. It also “saves” 150 calories per portion.
The recipe I made is easy, it takes only a few minutes to make, but it needs time to chill. If you like the desserts sweet, then use the amounts that are in the recipe, if you prefer them a little less sweet, don’t add the sugar.

Vegan pasta with cashew and peas

When I’m making pasta, I usually rely on cheese to make the sauce. But as I want to make more vegan recipes and I had no soft cheese in the fridge, I’ve decided to try a cashew and veggie sauce. It was delicious. The recipes I saw had nutritional yeast and maybe that gives a cheesy taste. I didn’t have, so I’ll have to try the recipe again with yeast.
My recipe sauce is not a substitute for the cheese sauce, but it’s something I loved and I would happily eat again.
