Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

Incredibly creamy (and cheesy!) pumpkin pasta recipe that you can prepare under 15 minutes.

It’s amazing how well pumpkin performs in this dish – it makes everything nice and creamy, and somehow doesn’t taste like…anything. Perfect way to sneak pumpkin to your pumpkin-hating spouse/kids’ brunch? I think so! 

Pumpkin Cream Pasta

Nutritional yeast + cashews add cheesy flavor to the pasta. As for milk, feel free to use your fav plant-based milk (I used soy milk). 

The preparation is super easy. I started by first blending all the ‘sauce’ ingredients (pumpkin puree + cashews + nooch + spices + milk) in a blender.

The blended sauce is quite runny. So to make it thick and creamy, I cooked it alongside all-purpose flour and let them simmer for 2 minutes.

Once it thickened up, I added cooked fusilli pasta and cooked for about a minute.
