Hi Trine, yes, you can use pumpkin. Pumpkin can be cut into 1-inch cubes and roasted the same as the squash. You will have chunks, instead of noodles. Hope this helps :) ~ Iris

Hi! I have two questions. 1) will my vitamix do the same job as my food processor? Since buying it I rarely pull out the processor anymore since the vitamix is easier to clean. 2) if I am only cooking for myself can I freeze the cooked squash for another time? I know Elizabeth said it could be kept in the fridge for a couple days. TIA

Hi Kendra! Just check your blender settings while blending your pesto on your Vitamix. As for the squash, you may pack them into freezer containers after they have cooled but it would be best to do this before making them into spaghetti strands. Hope this helps! ~ Jasmin

I cannot find basil. I was surprised! Is there another herb or two I can substitute? Thanks.

The pesto was amazing, I had to change the squash for zucchini, my squash was mash instead of noodles.

The recipe says pumpkin can be use instead of spaghetti squash. I have a pumpkin at home so my question is how I can cut it the pumpkin or maybe I can shred it. Do I do that before baking or after?
Thank you

Hi Mara! Thanks for contacting us about this. You may bake the pumpkin after peeling and cutting into thin strips. All the best! ~ Jasmin 💚

Hi. Should the nuts and seeds be soaked like in the other recipes or used without soaking? Thank you.
