Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

A recipe I found in Hungry-Girl cookbook. It's delicious! I didn't add the marshmallows on the top and it was still good. If you do add marshmallows, be sure to include in your count.

This sounds like a strange combination, but it's SO good. The hard part of this recipe used to be cleaning and cubing the squash. You can now buy it already cubed in a bag.

Baked Maple Butternut Squash
(no ratings)

Very yummy! Not low-cal or low-sugar, but as a delicacy once in a while, especially during fall and winter months when these squash are at their peak, this is a real treat! To save on prep time, I "cheat" and buy fresh butternut squash already cubed and packaged from my local grocery store. :o) The sodium content figured out by the recipe calculator is definitely wrong. Someone incorrectly listed 4 cups of butternut squash as having almost 2,000 mg of sodium when 4 cups has only 24 mg! The correct sodium content in this recipe is less than 50 mg per serving!

Butternut Squash Spice Cake
(no ratings)

Remarkably moist and tender, this cake gets its warmth from spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and a hint of black pepper. Whole-wheat pastry flour adds nutrients without compromising taste or texture.
