*I buy my cashews pre-roasted. If you can't find these, then simply bake them in a 400 degree oven for 5-7 minutes until very golden brown. Do this before soaking them overnight and do not skip this step as toasting the cashews adds a lot of flavor. You can also roast them in a pan for a few minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently.
**If you want to make a smaller serving of this recipe, I found it really hard to make a half batch of sauce...UNLESS you have a Blendec and have a twister jar. This smaller jars works great if you're a smaller family. BUT, this also makes great leftovers the next day!
