Vegan Rigatoni With Roasted Garlic Butternut Squash Sauce

Added to Recipes on Tue 06/18/2013


(Serves 4) 


1 head garlic, topped trimmed, drizzled with olive oil

1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

2 cups veggie broth

1 package whole-wheat rigatoni

2 cups kale, chopped

1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)

1/4 cup almond milk

1 pinch cayenne pepper

Salt to taste

1/4 cup fresh sage, chopped



Wrap garlic in aluminum foil and roast at 325°F degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large pot cover the squash with the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until squash is very tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. 


Once tender, purée the squash, veggie broth and roasted garlic until smooth. Stir in the nutritional yeast, almond milk, cayenne pepper and salt to taste. Season a pot of boiling water with salt and add the rigatoni. When it is nearly cooked to al dente, add the kale into the pot so it wilts and tenderizes. Cook for the last couple of minutes and strain pasta and kale. 


Finally, toss the rigatoni and kale with the sauce and garnish with fresh sage.
