Creamy Vegan Pumpkin and Potato Pasta

I love pasta, so so so much. It’s easy to cook, relatively fast and so versatile. You can literally throw almost anything in a pot, add some pasta to it and there you have a tasty and filling meal.

For lunch today I made pasta because it was cold and I was really vibing something warm and satisfying. At the moment my favourite vege has got to be pumpkin so obviously my pasta had to involve pumpkin, not to mention my dinner too. Whoops… when I get obsessed I get OBSESSED! haha so below you can find the pasta recipe I made today. It is relatively hands off, uses one pot (because I hate dishes), but still tastes like a lot of work has gone into it. So enjoy!

Lets get started πŸ™‚
