How do you make a creamy sauce for pasta?

The creaminess from pasta comes with a choice of ingredients.

When you want to create really smooth pasta sauce, here are some tips that might help you:

  1. Use soy cream or vegan whipping cream to make it more creamy.
  2. Use vegan butter for extra flavor and creaminess.
  3. Bending the sauce is the key! if you don't have a strong blender, you should blend a little longer, for the best results.
  4. Add more liquid. Sounds weird but adding more plant milk will definitely help with creaminess.

Here are some tips that may help you to create really smooth and creamy pasta sauce.

What is the edible part of a pumpkin?

You can eat every part of a pumpkin, including seeds, pulp, or even skin.

But for most recipes, you will need only a pulp to make a creamy and smooth puree.

Also, don't throw away the seeds, you can rinse them and roast them in the oven. This could be such a delicious snack!

    Can you make this with canned pumpkin instead?

      Absolutely! But the taste of pumpkin will be slightly different because roasting the pumpkin makes it a lot more flavorful! But it shouldn't be a problem!

    So in love with the colour of your creamy pumpkin pasta sauce. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to roasting pumpkin, but I bet it really adds to the flavour.
