VEGAN PUMPKIN ALFREDO. It was highly requested to make a vegan pasta recipe… and this one blew my mind! The best part is this recipe can be 1:1 subbed with dairy. I used the vegan butter, Parmesan cheese and coconut cream. I promise the coconut does not taste coconuty! ENJOY, SAVE AND FOLLOW for more pasta recipes @saridiskin.
