  • 454 g linguine or other pasta of choice
  • 2 cups pumpkin purée
  • 1 cup coconut milk I used full fat, but light would also work
  • 1/2 cup low sodium vegetable stock
  • 1 cup cooked white beans
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper or to taste


  1. Boil pasta water and cook pasta as per package instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, add pumpkin purée, coconut milk, vegetable stock and white beans to a high speed blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

  3. Add sauce to a large saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic, nutritional yeast, thyme, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a low boil, then reduce heat to low. Cook at low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Once pasta is cooked, add into sauce and stir to combine. Stir in lemon juice and red pepper flakes, serve and enjoy!
