I admit, I like pasta. I also like health and variety. Meet a new and healthy way to have your pasta in a (perhaps shockingly) delicious dish!


Quantity Unit Name Link Alternatives
1 butternut squash
1 box rotini pasta (or favorite shape of pasta)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup water
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ cup soaked cashews (optional)
2-3 drops liquid smoke (optional)


  1. Optional: Soak 1/4 cup of raw cashews in hot water for 2-3 hours (for a creamier sauce). Drain water before using.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash the butternut squash and cut it in half lengthwise. Place the two halves on a baking sheet with open sides facing up. Roast the squash for 40 mins or until you can easily stick a fork into it.
  3. Once the squash is cooked. Prepare the pasta according to package instructions.
  4. While the pasta is cooking, use a large spoon to scoop out the insides of the squash into a blender (being careful not to include the outer peel). Add seasonings and optional ingredients, if desired. Blend until smooth.
  5. Add sauce to drained pasta and serve. Enjoy it by itself or topped with our delicious pesto!
