Hey there, food lovers! Here's a quick and easy vegetarian dish that combines the creaminess of avocado with the rich flavors of pumpkin. Perfect for a cozy dinner, and it all comes together in a flash. Let’s get cooking!


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
  • 12 oz pasta (your choice, but penne or fusilli works great)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional for a vegetarian twist)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a wok, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  3. Add the pumpkin puree and vegetable broth to the wok. Stir well to combine. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. While the pumpkin sauce is simmering, scoop out the flesh of the avocados into a bowl. Mash until smooth. If you prefer a smoother texture, you can blend it.
  5. Add the mashed avocado to the pumpkin sauce in the wok. Stir until well combined. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste. If using, stir in the grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Add the cooked pasta to the wok. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated with the creamy sauce.
  7. Divide the creamy avocado pumpkin pasta among four plates. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and an extra sprinkle of Parmesan if desired.

And there you have it! A delicious, creamy avocado pumpkin pasta that’s ready in no time. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a special vegetarian feast. Enjoy, and remember, cooking should always be fun and full of flavor!
