  • Summary

    A fall-inspired comfort food pasta dinner. Perfect for a meatless meal or vegetarian side dish. The vegan butternut squash pasta sauce is rich and creamy, but also low in fat and calories, so it's healthy!

    Ingredients

    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
    • 1/4 tsp red pepper chili flakes
    • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
    • salt and pepper (to taste)
    • 1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2″ chunks)
    • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
    • 340 g whole grain pasta (cooked in salted water according to package directions (reserve 1 cup of the pasta water). I like to use Farfalle (bow-tie pasta) for this recipe, but Penne also works well.)
    • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (for garnish (omit for vegan option))
