With beautifully colored leaves making a gorgeous autumn this year, pumpkins are seen everywhere. So the Natural Owl had to go out, grab a lovely orange colored pumpkin for herself and get cooking. The vegan pumpkin pasta makes a wonderful warm and creamy dish for lunch or dinner and boosts your health with great organic and nutritious ingredients. As a little extra I have sprinkled some pine seeds on top, you can also swap them for walnuts, pekans, sesame, or any nuts or seeds of your like, or you just skip them and enjoy the pumpkin pasta by itself. To boost the nutrition value of the dish I have used a vegan whole wheat pasta.
