  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions for al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the potato, onion and squash in a medium saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until the potato and squash are tender and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the cashews, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon salt to a blender along with the cooked vegetables and 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Blend until the sauce has the consistency of thick pancake batter; you may need add up to 1/4 cup more of the cooking liquid if your sauce is too thick.  
  4. Toss the sauce with the pasta in a large bowl while still hot.
