Acorn Squash Alfredo, Vegan

By

No matter how you serve it, this vegan Alfredo acorn squash is delicious! You can either store in fridge and re-heat later–or eat right away–or transfer pasta into an oven safe dish and let heat at 300°F for 20 minutes. This will marinate the pasta a bit and soften the sauce. You can even add a sprinkle of vegan cheese on top if you’d like. Enjoy!

Preparation

Step 1

Turn on oven to 350°F.

Fill a casserole dish with an inch of water. Slice Acorn Squash in half (horizontal slice as shown) and lay flat in dish. Place in oven to roast at 350°F for 60 to 75 minutes.

When your squash is roasted the skin should peel away quite easily. Remove all skin and place squash flesh in a food processor. Add all other ingredients.
Blend on high for at least 2 minutes. You want all the parsley to chop into fine bits. Set sauce aside.

Boil a pot of salted water. Cook your pasta. 2 to 3 minutes before the pasta is ready to drain, add mushrooms. Drain as usual. Toss dry pasta in a splash of Olive Oil (optional).

Toss warm pasta in your Acorn Alfredo Sauce. Mix well so each pasta bit is coated.

You can either store in fridge and re-heat later–or eat right away–or transfer pasta into an oven safe dish and let heat at 300°F for 20 minutes. This will marinate the pasta a bit and soften the sauce. You can even add a sprinkle of vegan cheese on top if you’d like. Enjoy!
