Who would’ve thought that you could incorporate squash in mac and cheese, and you wouldn’t even notice it? So, believe it or not, even people who don’t eat squash will love this amazing version.

Ingredients for Squash Mac & Cheese:

  • 12 ounces of elbow macaroni pasta
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp of mustard powder
  • 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 3-4 cups or 1 pound of butternut squash, cubed, and peeled
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • ½ cup of milk
  • ¾ cup of shredded gruyere cheese, or any shredded cheese
  • Freshly chopped parsley, for serving

How to Make Squash Mac & Cheese:

Step 1

Place a large pot filled with water on a stove over medium-high heat, then bring it to a boil, add the pasta, and cook it according to the package instructions until al dente. Place a large skillet on a stove over medium-low heat, then heat the olive oil, and add the anions. Saute them until softened and translucent, then add the butternut squash, minced garlic, mustard powder, and cayenne pepper, then toss them, and allow them to cook for a few more minutes.

Step 2

Pour in the vegetable broth and milk, boil, and cook for about 10 minutes or until the squash is fork-tender. Using an immersion blender, blend everything until smooth and creamy, then add the cooked and drained pasta, and fold them until evenly combined. Add the shredded cheese, then continue to mix until well combined, and add more milk until desired consistency. Garnish it with freshly chopped parsley, then serve warm, and enjoy!
