    the80srule's Note:

    To give credit where it is due, I based this off another post, Penne With Pumpkin Sauce because it looked delicious but I decided to change some ingredients to make it vegetarian suitable (primarily vegan) and healthier. I would garnish this with real parmesan as shown in the original post, but vegans and the lactose intolerant may like to use My Vegan Parmesan. This would be great with whole wheat pasta or that Ronzoni Smart Taste stuff made from veggies.

      I adored this recipe! I halved it and used two ounces of whole grain penne, and decreased the olive oil to one teaspoon. For the vegetable broth, I used consomme; and I replaced the soy milk with almond milk. I didn't have any fresh parsley, so I used dried, and I sprinkled it over the final dish instead of mixing it in with the pasta and sauce. The only thing I would do differently is to slightly undercook the pasta, because I didn't eat it immediately, and it was on the stove, in the sauce, for about half an hour. I like my pasta very al dente, so this was a little too overcooked for me. Thanks for posting!

      This recipe was easy to make and filling, and the sauce was so creamy it coated the pasta perfectly. But I've got to give it a four because the husband and I just couldn't decide how we felt about the flavor. We had big bowls of pasta that tasted like pie. (Did I do something wrong?) We added a few red pepper flakes, which I think made it taste a little better. It made my house smell amazing, though! Thanks for opening our eyes to a new dish!
