Ingredients

  • 13.5 ounces Pasta (1 large box/bag)
  • 2 cups Butternut Squash, peeled & roasted or peeled, diced & boiled (about 1/2 large butternut squash)
  • 1 1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast (flakes or powder)
  • 3/4 cup Non-dairy Milk
  • 1/2 large White Onion (diced)
  • 2 tbsp Veggie Broth
  • 2 tbsp Non-dairy Butter (Earth Balance)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Flour
  • 1 tbsp Mustard
  • Pinches of salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and garlic (optional)

Method

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add butternut squash (for roasting, heat oven to 400 degrees and place squash face down on a cooking sheet for 30-45 minutes). Cook until squash is softened and drain. Place in your food processor with broth, nutritional yeast, onion, mustard and pulse until mixture is smooth. Set aside for now.

Step 2

Prepare pasta according to your box or bag (or however you normally do it!) Drain and set aside.

Step 3

In a medium pan, heat butter over medium-low heat until melted. Whisk in flour and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in non-dairy milk, butternut squash, and seasonings. Continue to whisk until the mixture begins to thicken (about 1-2 minutes) if it's too thick add in more non-dairy milk. Once thickened, remove from the burner. Fold into pasta and serve warm, enjoy!
