Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese
The winter is ideal for eating a comforting squash dish and what better way to enjoy these nutritious, local veggies than with noodles! To save time, you can also find pre-peeled and chopped squash in some stores. Serve this hearty meal with vegetables, like our Simple Sauteed Greens, steamed broccoli or a salad.
1. Cook package of pasta according to package directions then drain and set aside.
2. Meanwhile place stock and chopped squash in a pot, heat to boiling then reduce to simmer until squash is tender, approximately 20 minutes. Drain, reserving the liquid.
3. Blend squash with spices, olive oil and milk, adding a little of the reserved stock if necessary to make a smooth and creamy sauce.
4. Add sauce back to pasta pot and heat gently. Stir in cheese then add the pasta. Mix well.
