  • 12 oz whole wheat pasta, elbows (i use dreamfield's brand as seen in the photos for this recipe)
  • 1 cup vegan parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup v- 8 butternut squash soup (can'tsp find the soup no worries! just use defrosted frozen butternut squash instead)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard (from here down, feel free to add a lot more of these spices if you want. these are just guidelines. )
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper ( is hotter than black pepper, so if it's your first time using it, be careful.)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder


  1. Boil pasta shells in salted water until slightly firm, according to package directions.
  2. In another saucepan, combine the vegetable broth, Parmesan, cheddar, and butternut squash over medium heat until melted and combined. Turn off the heat. Add salt, mustard, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder & Tabasco.
  3. Drain the pasta but don’t rinse it. Add it to the cheese sauce (use a large bowl if necessary) and toss to coat the pasta. Taste and add more salt or pepper, according to your taste.
