This butternut squash pasta recipe makes a hearty meal perfect for people who have food allergies or dietary restrictions. Created by Beth at the blog Tasty Yummies, the Spicy Butternut Squash and Kale Cheesy Macaroni is gluten-free, nut-free and vegan.
Ideal for a weeknight meal -- especially to enjoy during Monday night football -- the dish is an easy way to incorporate plant-based foods, even during a season typically full of meat. This vegan version of mac and cheese is a lighter take and full of healthy ingredients.
The spicy, creamy and crunchy butternut squash pasta is full of vitamins and antioxidants. Hot sauce and gluten-free breadcrumbs give the topping a spicy crisp texture. Organic brown rice pasta and unsweetened coconut milk address some of the more problematic items you might find. This recipe doesn't technically include cheese.
