This vegan Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese is our go-to creamy “cheesy” pasta sauce recipe. Great meal idea for kids and adults and it is ready in under 30 minutes.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins

Yield: Serves 4


  • 8 ounces pasta of choice (I used this gluten-free one)
  • 2 1/2 cups peeled butternut squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil of choice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions
  2. Steam the butternut squash for about 10 minutes or until it’s soft (we place a steamer basket in a pot, add some water and when it’s boiling we add the squash and cook it over medium-high heat)
  3. Place the steamed squash in a blender with the rest of the ingredients (except the pasta) and blend until smooth.
  4. Mix the pasta and the sauce in the pot and enjoy while warm!


*Store leftovers in fridge for 5 days. When reheating, add a splash of milk or water so it gets creamy again.
