Pasta is a favourite at our place. I loved it when I was young and still love it. My kids love it too. Nowadays there are many other varieties of pasta made with quinoa, or brown rice , whole wheat etc. I love buying them and combine them with a healthy sauce preferably made with vegetables and it makes a healthy and a satisfying meal. I have always loved the white sauce and the cheesy creamy delicious pasta made with it. But since I make it quite often , I am quite daunted with the amount of cheese and flour which goes into it. So I have been trying to make some interesting sauces which are also low in fat and makes the eating experience guilt free.
This time I used pumpkin. Its a very simple recipe and can be done in a few minutes. This is also an interesting way to sneak in some pumpkin in your diet especially if you are a pumpkin hater. Many people I know hate pumpkin as they find it quite sweet for their taste. But in this recipe , you actually cant guess that there is pumpkin. Also cashews gives a nice creaminess to the pasta. I used it as I previously used it here and it was good. The combination of all the ingredients is just delicious and even tastes a bit cheesy. My kids loved it . I have even made this without cashewnuts and it tastes just fine too.
I have used the normal durum wheat tubular pasta . But you can try to use the healthy options available noways. I will be coming with more recipes soon!!
