You’ve seen me make Cauliflower Mac n’ Cheese; you’ve also probably seen my Cashew Alfredo Pasta. Most people think that going vegan means you wouldn’t be able to enjoy a nice plate of creamy delicious pasta anymore. The truth is, they just didn’t know that there are lots of alternative ingredients you can use to whip up a creamy pasta sauce (and the best part is there doesn’t need to be any dairy in it to give that creamy, delicious texture). Another fun and healthy alternative is using butternut squash.
This Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta sauce uses only 5 ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about following a complicated recipe. All you need to do is blend all the ingredients together and voila — you got yourself a good creamy sauce! I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a great comfort food recipe that doesn’t need too many ingredients.

5-Ingredient Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce
- 1/4 cup soaked & softened cashews
- 200g butternut squash
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp crushed red peppers (optional)
- 1/2 cup water (or non-dairy milk)
- To soften cashews, you can soak them in water overnight or boil them with some water for around 15-20 minutes then drain.
- Add butternut squash (I used frozen & thawed butternut squash as this is the easiest), softened cashews, nutritional yeast, crushed red peppers (optional), and water (or non-dairy milk) in a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
- Add to your favourite pasta – I like to add it to (mostly) cooked pasta and let the pasta finish cooking with the sauce.
- Plate pasta and top with parsley. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
