Super easy and quick dinner, lunch or lunchbox meal and is super adaptable. I sometimes blend through spinach, carrot or broccoli as well for an added veggie boost.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 500g Butternut pumpkin cubed
  • 500g Pasta of choice
  • 1 teaspoon Vegeta stock powder
  • 2 tablespoon Bega Cashew Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon Rosemary
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon juice
  • Sprinkle Cheese for topping


  1. Steam cubed pumpkin until very soft and overcooked around 15-20 minutes. Cook pasta as per packet instructions
  2. Put cooked pumpkin in blender along with all other ingredients (but not the pasta) and blend until smooth.
  3. When the pasta is cooked stir the pumpkin mixture through until well combined
  4. Serve up and top with cheese and veggies
