Now that the fall season is upon us (which we know because Starbucks has started selling pumpkin spiced lattes again), many are looking for other ways to incorporate the autumnal food into more of their meals -- which is where this pumpkin pasta comes in.
The savory dish was created by Katie of Veggie and the Beast. The pumpkin alfredo linguine does not contain any meat or dairy, making it ideal for vegans. Instead, the pumpkin pasta is soaked in blended up cashews, fall spices and more to give it a rich and creamy taste.
Although pumpkin flavors have always been associated with this time of year, the popularity of certain lattes seems to have resulted in an catapult of popularity for the gourd in recent years.
