Best Pumpkin Pasta Sauce

Simple Sumptuous cooking

Gather Pumpkin puree, vegetable broth, herbs and spices, nutritional yeast, coconut milk and pasta.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions and preserve some of the pasta water. I cooked pasta using an Instant pot.

Saute chopped garlic with vegan butter or olive oil.

Add pumpkin purée, vegetable broth, and mix well.

Add nutritional yeast and pepper, Italian seasoning, cayenne, cinnamon, dried or fresh sage, and salt, and stir well.

Add coconut milk and cornstarch mixture (2 tablespoons of water) to thicken the sauce. Cook for 5 minutes until it reaches your desired consistency.

Add cooked pasta to the sauce and mix well until all the pasta is coated.

If required, add pasta water to loosen the sauce.

Garnish with fresh parsley or vegan parmesan cheese if desired. I garnished my pasta with pepper flakes and basil leaves.
