I'm so excited to share with you one of my favorite recipes to date, and a recipe that will truly make all of your fall dreams come true. Well, maybe not all of them, but certainly your cozy, comfort food dreams ☺️
Combining some of my favorite fall flavors such as pumpkin, sweet potato, thyme, and sage, this pasta recipe is not only delicious but super supportive to your health as well! I remember a time in my life when I was terrified to eat pasta, thinking I'd gain 10 lbs overnight and considering it to be a “no” food. Later on, I learned that our bodies actually thrive off of carbs, when given the right balance and nutritional substances.
You'll see I recommend a gluten-free pasta as I've found brown rice, chickpea, or cassava pastas to be the most supportive, but you can add this yummy sauce to any pasta you desire. Plus, if pasta isn't your thing you can actually turn this sauce into a super yummy soup by adding 1 additional cup of vegetable broth before blending. Enjoy!

Cook pasta according to packaging and set aside.
Chop yellow onion and sweet potato and steam for 10min on the stove.
Dice garlic cloves and add to a small pot with a dash of olive oil and begin to simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add vegetable broth, cashew milk, arrowroot powder, and thyme to pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes on medium low heat, stirring frequently.
Remove mixture from stove top and add to high speed blender along with canned pumpkin, and steamed sweet potato and onion. Blend on high until a creamy, sauce like mixture forms.
Add cooked pasta to a large pot, turning heat to a low simmer to warm. Top pasta with blended sauce, and ground sage and black pepper to taste. Stir, serve desired amounts, and enjoy!
*You can add 1 additional cup of vegetable broth to the sauce mixture to also create a pumpkin soup if desired.
