Ingredients

    3 cups of cooked elbow macaroni
    1 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Tbsp All-purpose flour
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup Butternut Squash puree
    1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup Low Fat Cream Cheese
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    1/8 tsp paprika

Directions

*Cook your butternut squash by steaming until soft, then puree with a hand blender or food processor. Puree until very smooth. You can do this beforehand and freeze in 1/2 cup portions for easy prep*

Add the olive oil and flour to a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it is a thick paste (not browned) - about 1-2 minutes.
Add the milk and cook, stirring intermittently until mixture begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.
Add the squash puree, cheddar cheese, cream cheese and seasonings. Stir until the cheeses have melted and the sauce is smooth.
Add macaroni noodles and stir.

  • This is great. I ommited the cream cheese and just mashed up the squash and then baked it. My picky eater of a daughter loved it. Will make again. - 5/27/10
