Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese recipe

  • 1 1⁄2 cup Butternut Squash (cubed)
  • 2 cups Shells (or Elbow Macaroni)
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese (I used a combo of American & Swiss)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1⁄3 cup Milk

Note: I bought the pre-cubed butternut squash that comes in a 12oz bag --- so worth it!!

  • Boil the cubed butternut squash in about an inch of water over the stovetop for approximately 6 minutes, or until soft.  Then, drain out the water and transfer back to the saucepan.
  • In a separate saucepan, cook the pasta.
  • Smash the cooked butternut squash with a masher or an immersion blender.
  • Add in the cheese and milk to the smashed butternut squash, and stir over low heat.
  • Once pasta is done, drain out the water and add back to the saucepan. Melt in the butter to coat the pasta.
  • Then add in the pasta to the butternut squash/cheese mixture.
  • Stir and then serve!
