    I found a recipe for mac and cheese with butternut squash, then another and combined them and added a few twists of my own. This is a delicious fall meal!

      WOW! My kids loved this. And they found out halfway through that it had a big helping of squash in it. their only complaint was that it didn't really taste cheesy. I used Monterrey Jack and Swiss, so next time I definitely be using a sharp cheddar. I also used half whole wheat pasta and half regular, which worked wonderfully. I wasn't really wowed by the cottage cheese (my standard ricotta replacement), because it was too chunky for me. I think I will leave it out next time, as there is plenty of sauce for this. :) We will be making this again, what a great one dish meal! thank you for sharing.

      I loathe macaroni and cheese, and *I* enjoyed this dish! It turned out a little dry, so I think I cooked down the milk too much - and I'll have to play with that to get the end result a good consistency. This dish was really flavorful, though, slightly sweet with a small kick and a an aftertaste that made you crave more. I love that it has the squash included, making it more nutritious than the traditional dish. We'll be making this again!
