For Halloween we created a vegan pumpkin pasta sauce that is so yummy. It’s got a little bit of sweetness from the pumpkin, earthy mushrooms and we added a bit of spiciness to it. 

Perfect for fall and winter dishes that will soon be one of your family favorites! 

We hope you love it, just like we did!
