Double Squash Pasta with Brussels Sprouts and Hemp Parmesan

I wanted something quick and delicious the other night for dinner, and I wanted it to contain delicious squash.  I am in love with squash as of lately.  Well actually I have always been, its just that now it is in season again.  I thought I would use some sweet kabocha squash, my absolute favorite kind because it is so sweet, to make a silky sauce for raw pasta.  Which is why I called it double squash pasta because it contained zucchini as the noodles as well.  I blended up the squash into a creamy sauce that tasted almost like cheese, with silky walnut butter and a bit of nutritional yeast.  I added in some tiny brussels sprouts with the zucchini noodles that I had gotten from the farmers market, as well as some tomatoes from my Grandpa's garden. It was a delicious combination with the silky squash sauce.  Lastly, I topped it off with a bit of hemp parmesan and it was sooo good!  Autumn comfort food at its best, that I can feel wonderful about eating!

Double Squash Pasta with Brussels Sprouts and Hemp Parmesan 
Serves 2

4 zucchini, spiralized
1 1/2 cups brussels sprouts (kept whole if small, sliced if large)
2 medium tomatoes, diced

Sauce:
1 1/2 cup sweet winter squash (such as kabocha, butternut or red kuri)
1/4 cup filtered water (or as needed)
1/4 cup raw walnut butter
sea salt to taste
1 garlic clove
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Parmesan:
1/3 cup shelled hemp seeds
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp sea salt

Combine the zucchini, brussels sprouts, and tomatoes in a large bowl. In a high speed blender, combine the squash, water, walnut butter, salt, garlic, lemon, and yeast and blend until smooth (using a little more water if too thick). Toss with the pasta and veggies in the bowl until coated.  For the parmesan, combine the hempseeds, yeast, and sea salt in a food processor and buzz until fine and well combined, then sprinkle over the pasta to serve.

    I've been surprising myself with how often I seem to actively want raw dishes despite the weather getting colder - I guess once the body is used to a high proportion of raw vs. cooked food it automatically craves the former no matter how cold it is...! This double squash dish looks like comfort food at its best <3
