I’ve got another fantastic pumpkin recipe for fall! This creamy pumpkin pasta sauce is dairy free, oil free, and only takes 30 minutes! One pot is all you need for easy clean up with this One Pot Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pasta Recipe.

I’ve had store-bought pumpkin marinara sauce from a jar before, but of course it’s not whole food plant based with all the cream, added sugar, oil, and high sodium content.

I had to see if I could make a good copy cat, but keep the creaminess and flavor.

This pumpkin pasta is super fast & simple

This was way more simple than I had even imagined! After water sautéing the onions & garlic, you literally throw all the rest of the ingredients in (except the spinach) and simmer until the pasta is tender. Then add the fresh baby spinach, stir, and cook for just a couple minutes longer until the spinach is wilted.

It has just the right amount of liquid to cook the pasta, but end up nice and creamy at the end. Light coconut milk is my go-to now to create the creamy texture with great flavor.

This vegan pumpkin sauce even has a tomato flavor to it, so it’s kind of like a pumpkin marinara sauce.

So yum!
