  • Author: Maria
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 servings 1x


Creamy, nutrient-dense vegan butternut squash pasta sauce!


  • 250 g pasta of choice, gluten free if needed
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed (seeds removed)
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 cup dairy free milk
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp sage (optional)


  1. In a medium sauce pan, boil the cubed butternut squash until cooked through.
  2. In a medium pan over medium heat, add the oil and sauté the onion and garlic until translucent and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the cooked butternut squash and keep stirring for about 5 more minutes. Set aside and let cool off.
  3. In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water before draining.
  4. Carefully transfer the butternut squash with the onions and garlic to a blender (blend in batches if needed). Add 1/2 cup of pasta water, milk, and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth and creamy. Bring the blended sauce back to the pan and add salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Transfer pasta to the sauce and toss until evenly coated.
  6. Serve the pasta and top it off with some sage, red pepper flakes, and/or any veggie of choice.
