Butternut Squash Cashew Carbonara


Butternut Squash Cashew Carbonara


This creamy vegan Butternut Squash Cashew Carbonara is the perfect cosy autumn meal. I’ve made mine with half butternut squash noodles and half spaghetti to up the veggie content in this delicious and simple dish. Carbonara is such a classic comfort food and this version really hits the spot.
