Coconut & Squash Sauce YUM

Good Morning people. I haven’t posted in a while because I have been sick, and when I say sick I mean really sick :-(. I caught a bad flu and have spent a lot of time in bed resting, but feeling 100% again…TG. While I was ill, I really needed a big bowl of creamy comfort food and I have always LOVED butternut squash sauces so I decided to come up with my own vegan, butternut squash sauce which is AMAZING and so easy to make! To give it some extra creaminess, I added some coconut cream to thicken the sauce up and make it even more delicious.

I devoured mine with gnocchi ( that’s just what I was in the mood for) but this sauce would be fab with any pasta, especially a nice linguini I think (yum). Also, I used my nutribullet for this, but you can use a hand blender just as easily.
