Alternative 'butternut squash' Pasta with Aubergine Pesto

This Vegan, Gluten free pasta made from Butternut squash is a great lower calorie, filling and comforting alternative to traditional pasta's and zucchini noodles.
Along with the Aubergine pesto it makes a delicious healthy Dinner, hope you like!

The pasta is made from Butternut squash and is cut using a crinkle cutting tool to give it a fusili type look, which you can purchase from a cooking store or online, I actually cheated myself and bought the squash pre cut from Tesco.
Here is a link to a crinkle cutting tool on Amazon incase you don't have one:


Butternut squash (Crinkle cut)

Aubergine Pesto

1 whole Roasted Aubergine (chopped into small pieces) (you can buy pre made in a jar or roast your own)
olive oil
2 cloves garlic
handful of basil
50g pine nuts
juice of one lemon
2tbsp nutritional yeast
a little chilli powder
salt pepper


Boil, stir fry or bake your fusili style pieces of squash.

And making the Pesto is super simple just add all your ingredients into a food processor, until it becomes your desired texture then stir in with your butternut pasta, serve warm.


Hope you like this recipe and try for yourself!
