This Vegan Butternut Squash Pasta Penne is to die for! Creamy and easy recipe – ready in 25 minutes. A butternut squash puree with pumpkin seeds.

  • 2 tablespoon of Spring Onions, chopped
  • Pumpkin Seeds



Peel the Butternut Squash, cut in smaller cubes and cook in boiling water for 15 minutes with a gently touch of salt.


Meanwhile in another can cook the Pastas al dente after package instructions, about 7-8 minutes.


Remove the water from the butternut squash, add in a small blender og mixer along with turmeric, vegan cream, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well, taste with a spoon and adjust if needed.


Drain the pastas as well and serve place in bowls or plates. Add the butternut squash puree on top of the pasta. Decorate with salt, pepper, chopped spring onions and pump seeds.

How do make Butternut Squash puree / creme:

This Butter squash creme can be made in many variations and you can use many different vegetables. If you have pumpkin for example (or another of this season delicious pumpkin and squash varieties) – these would be perfect too. But you’ll need to cook them a bit before.

I’ve always thought that a puree like this would take days to make and be bit like a kitchen project. Well, I’m so surprised how easy it was to make – and how easy it is to prepare! If you’re working with a full butternut squash (like I did), then cut the squash in half right where it starts to get wider, leaving you two pieces. Then slice off the ends, lengthwise and cut off the peel – cut in small cubes and these are now ready to be cooked.

My butternut squash pasta sauce is creating a creamy, almost cheese-like texture. Marked with a hint of the squash’s sweetness. But a hint of some sourness would add a bit more taste and deepness. I just liked this very soft and creamy Butternut taste so that’s why I didn’t add lime or lemon juice.. But fell free to adjust and add some!

Some might include cashews, almond or dairy-free milk too to get a more “light” puree. I tested this the other day – but felt the creme got more into a soup – than a creamy puree. But if you’ve want to make a butternut squash soup someday, you’ll know that either plant milk or nuts will pair perfectly with the tasty butternut squash.

I was hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reliable site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Leads I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com.

  13. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
