May Recipe: Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta

Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta

 

From The Recipe Critic


 

Here's the yummy recipe for the Mac & "cheese" made with butternut squash from Jamie Rackl, LMT. Jamie omitted the milk and just used veggie broth and used just a cup of extra sharp aged cheddar and it turned out well, but you could certainly stick more closely to the recipe. I also subbed out Banza pasta made of garbanzo beans instead of traditional pasta.

 

Ingredients:

1 and ½ cups macaroni noodles, uncooked

3-4 cups cubed butternut squash, peeled and de-seeded

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

½ cup vegetable broth

¾ cup 1% milk

1 and ¼ cup cheese, I used sharp cheddar

Salt and pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

Optional: fresh parsley


 

Instructions:

1. Cook the macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium low heat.

3. Meanwhile, peel the butternut squash and remove the seeds. Cut into large chunks.

4. Boil the squash until completely tender and then drain. Place the squash in the blender with the butter, lots of salt, pepper, broth, paprika, and milk.

5. Pulse until smooth.

6. Pour the sauce over the cooked noodles and add the cheese. Stir until melted.

7. Add more salt and pepper to taste.

8. Serve with parsley if desired.
