Directions:

1. Cut the pumpkin to pieces and place the pieces on a baking mat.

2. Bake in the oven at 180C/356F for around 30 minutes.

If you're using a can of pumpkin puree skip to these steps

3. Boil pasta till al dente. Save the pasta water for later.

4. Blend roasted pumpkin to a purΓ©e.

5. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan.

6. Add pumpkin puree, spices and reserved pasta water.

7. Add plant-based milk, and simmer for around 4 minutes.

8. Add the kale.

9. Add the cooked pasta.

10. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add more plant-based milk for a creamier base.

11. Add vegan cheese 15-30mins before serving and mix thoroughly.

Optional: top vegan cheese and bake it for a baked pasta dish.

Notes:

For a thinner base, boil your pumpkin instead.

Baking the pumpkin pieces would result in a more roasted taste.

Wow yummy! Wonder if it would still be good if we mash the pumpkin instead of blending it so we get some pumpkin bits?

Hey @amazinganne! Thanks for your question. As long as the pumpkin is boiled it should be good to mash. But it will be not as creamy as there will be higher water content. Try not to over-boil and sieve the water before mashing πŸ˜‰
