Cozy and comforting mushroom and butternut squash pasta!

This pasta dish highlights the flavor of mushroom and was created in order to repurpose the vegan mushroom gravy.

As this pasta dish is quite savory and packed with flavor, adding butternut squash not only adds color but also a hint of sweetness!

To echo the flavors that are in the vegan mushroom gravy, I am adding thyme as well as some fresh and vibrant parsley.

This recipe is dairy free and vegan!

You can use any kind of pasta, even gluten free. I love the shape of the pipe rigate, elbow pasta or shell for this dish.

 

Steps

Quick Prep

This recipe was created to repurpose the vegan mushroom gravy sauce.

You don't have to add the gravy but it is recommended.

Peel the butternut squash then cut into small, bite-size dice. Be sure to sure a big and sharp knife for this.

Using a damp cloth or paper towel, wipe the mushrooms to remove any dirt and discard any hard stems.

Chop the mushrooms into bit-size pieces. I usually quarter the mushrooms.

Get the remaining ingredients out and ready.

Lastly, bring a large pot of water to a boil. While you are waiting for it to boil, start the next step.

Cook The Onion & Butternut Squash

Heat a large skillet with high sides on high.

Once hot, add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and lower the heat to medium-low.

Add the finely diced onion and sauté for a couple of minutes.

Next, add the diced butternut squash. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.

Season the butternut squash with 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

It's always best to slightly under season in the beginning and add more salt later.

Add 1 cup of vegetable broth then cover the skillet with a lid, leaving some room for steam to escape.

Allow the butternut squash to cook and steam for 5-7 minutes or until fork tender.

Cook The Pasta

While the butternut squash cooks, attend to the pasta.

First, add 2 Tablespoons of salt to the boiling water then drop the pasta into the boiling water.

Check the time stated on the pasta package then set a timer.

Done

Add The Mushrooms, Gravy and Pasta

Add the mushrooms to the skillet, stir and cook for 5-10 minutes.

Next, add the vegan mushroom gravy and the cooked pasta.

Also add a splash or two of the past water to thin out the sauce.

Stir to coat the pasta in the sauce evenly and turn off the heat.

Get a spoon and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and/or black pepper if needed.

Lastly, add thyme and parsley and stir to combine.

Done

Serve

Spoon the pasta into warm bowls and enjoy!

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
