A Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta (Made Alfredo Style) made with melted cheese that’ll satisfy all your fall and pasta cravings!
So obviously, I’ve been eating for the time I was gone. It’s like my favourite thing to do other than watch marathons of Modern Family and my new fav. Netflix series HIMYM) and this vegan pumpkin pasta was one of the things that I loved so much that I knew I would have to share it here with you. Let’s start from the top shall we?
First, the pasta. You can use any pasta your heart desires, but penne pasta has my heart. You just cook your pasta based on the package directions. P.S. Quinoa pasta is pretty fabulous, and the next time I make this I’m so using quinoa pasta. Next, the sauce.
THE SAUCE. This sauce is a combination of delicious thick pumpkin puree, coconut milk, cooking white wine and vegan cheese. I know I know, the coconut milk makes this sauce creamy, but the CHEESE makes it to die for. We are talking notes and hints or tanginess complementing the creamy and mellow coconut milk matched by the delicious savoury pumpkin puree and your favourite seasonings all coming together in this one sauce. I had to taste it right away, then went back and added some red pepper flakes because I’m kind of pepper obsessed and pepper makes everything better. All in all, this vegan pumpkin pasta is a total must make.
Needless to say, I went back for the leftovers of this baby. I MAY or may not have hid so no one else could get any (oops). This time, I added about ¼ cup of coconut milk while I was warming it up so it was extra creamy. This trick makes it taste like it fresh off the stove. I’ll be adding that note in the recipe instructions so you can cream to your heart’s desire. Happy eating!
