Pasta for babies and kids is always one of the top favorites.

How can we make pasta more nourishing and play around with different flavors? This dish is a great example, this recipe is super creamy and tasty, it has a subtle sweetness from the roasted butternut squash and cashew milk that kids will love. Enjoy!

  • Boil water for the pasta and cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce:
    • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet or dutch oven. Sauté the onions until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to cook, stirring continuously for another 30 seconds, until fragrant.
    • Add the cooked butternut squash, broth, cashews, nutritional yeast, sautéed onions salt and sage to the NutraMilk and process until smooth and creamy.

  • Reduce heat to medium/low and pour the sauce into the skillet. Simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally, until warmed through. If you have time, simmer for a few minutes longer to let the flavours develop more. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • When the pasta is done cooking, drain it and add it to the skillet with the sauce. Gently stir until evenly coated. Serve immediately.
