Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Pasta – Cali Press

Recipe: Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Pasta – Cali Press

Butternut pumpkin pasta has long been a staple during the winter months and despite the visuals that spring to mind (Mmmm butter!) this is not a sauce-heavy pasta. In fact, the thing we love most about this dish is that it’s so damn tasty you don’t even miss all that sauce! The whole wheat flavour of the pasta balances perfectly with the roasted pumpkin and salty overtones of cheese, making this meal absolutely delicious! So here it is, check out Naturally Ella’s recipe for an easy prep weeknight pasta featuring savoury roasted pumpkin with butter, parmesan, walnuts, and rosemary.

Mac ‘n’ Tease: The yummiest and healthiest recipe ever

So, what makes this My New Roots mac ‘n’ tease recipe so good? It’s vegan! Not one speck of cheese or milk or butter or cream in sight. Nope. Instead the delectable sauce is a winning combination of roasted butternut squash, garlic, creamy butter beans, and cheesy nutritional yeast.
