Recipe from: Alpro



  • 1 butternut squash (around 1 kg)


  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  • 75g grated vegan parmesan (or 15g nutritional yeast flakes)


  • ½ tsp powdered garlic


  • 1 tsp mustard powder


  • 1 tsp grated nutmeg


  • 300ml Alpro Oat Unsweetened drink


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus a little extra for oiling the squash


  • 1 bunch of sage


  • 100g hazelnuts, roughly chopped


  • 400g macaroni


  • Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 180°. Cut the squash in half length-ways and scoop out and discard the seeds. Score the flesh with a cross hatch pattern using a sharp knife, brush lightly with a little oil, season generously with salt and pepper. Place on a parchment lined baking tray flesh side down and cook in the oven for 50-60 mins or until completely soft all the way through, you can check this by piercing the flesh with a knife. Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions in seasoned water. Whilst the pasta is cooking, scoop the flesh from the butternut leaving the skin behind and place in a blender or processor along with the lemon juice, vegan parmesan, powdered garlic, mustard powder, 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, Alpro Oat Unsweetened drink and nutmeg. Heat the sauce through on the hob, adjusting the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining tbsp. of olive oil in a small pan over a medium heat and fry the sage leaves and hazelnuts until crispy. Mix the pasta into the sauce and spoon into bowls, top with the sage and hazelnuts to serve.
