This is my recipe for Vegan Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce! It requires minimal ingredients, easy to make and creamy – doesn’t it sound delicious?
The ingredients include butternut squash and roasted peppers which are actually quite popular in vegan pasta dishes, mainly because they make a great creamy pasta base.
The great thing about this recipe is that we can simply roast most of the main ingredients together (butternut squash, peppers, onion, garlic), then add everything into a blender to create an easy and delicious vegan pasta sauce. This sauce can also double as a creamy soup by simply making it slightly more liquidy by adding in more non-dairy milk and/or vegetable broth.
Since Christmas is just around the corner, I decided why not throw butternut squash and red peppers into ONE delicious, creamy, and satisfying pasta dish!
This recipe is the second of my Christmas dinner series. The first recipe was a delicious easy vegan nut roast which works as a great substitute for any meat dish on your holiday table. To get my easy vegan nut roast recipe, check out this blog post here.

This was so easy to make and it’s absolutely delicious! I’m glad it made so much so that I could freeze some to enjoy when butternut squash is no longer in season. I’ll definitely cook this again!

Loved this recipe, it makes such a nice thick delicious pasta sauce. Perfect addition to my pasta sauce recipes. I used the leftover sauce as a soup the next day- mmmmmmm!
This is delicious. I forgot to add the nutritional yeast and it’s still so good. I think next time instead of Unsweetened almond milk I’ll use coconut milk for a little more flavor. This was so easy I will be coming back to this recipe often.
This is so creamy and comforting! Hard to believe it’s dairy free and healthy
