Ingredients

  • 4 oz whole grain pasta (about 3 cups dry)
  • 4 mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 onion chopped small
  • 1 clove fresh garlic minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil or water or veg broth
  • 1 cup spinach chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh sage or 1 tsp dried, optional
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4-1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch black pepper

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta, boiling for 8-10 minutes until just cooked.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large pan to medium and saute the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in olive oil (or water or veg broth) until soft and lightly browned. Add the spinach, and toss until it wilts.
  • Push the vegetables to the side of the pan, and add the pumpkin and non-dairy milk to the empty side, stirring them together into a thick sauce. Add the nutritional yeast, sage (if using), salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you like. Toss the sauce through the vegetables.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, drain, and either toss in the pan with the sauce or serve topped with sauce.
