Squashy Mac & Cheese

Submitted by: BEE_ELLE

Introduction

Ingredients

    1 butternut squash (roasted and pureed) or 2 packages frozen squash
    1 lb. whole wheat pasta
    5 oz. cheddar
    2 oz. mozzeralla
    1/2 c. ricotta
    2 c. milk

Directions

First, cook up 16 oz. of pasta–I used whole wheat shells–drain, and place in a baking dish. For the sauce, melt two 10 oz. boxes of frozen pureed squash with two cups of low fat milk in a saucepan. (Or roast & puree the whole squash.) When the squash is fully melted and combined with the milk, add 5 oz. grated extra sharp cheddar cheese, 2 oz. mozzarella, and half a cup of ricotta cheese. You can go low fat with the mozzarella and ricotta, but you really need full flavor sharp cheddar to make this taste right. When the cheese has melted in, add a teaspoon of mustard, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and salt and black pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix. Top the whole thing with a bit of grated parmesan and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes…until the filling is bubbling. Taken from http://blueberryhil.wordpress.com/2008/09/08/losing-my-appetite/ .
