    Russell Cooks's Note:

    This healthy mac has some earthy tones since I use winter vegetables. The measurements most likely very off as I never measure, but its easy to eyeball in this recipe and mistakes are easily covered. Don't dig in expecting your traditional mac, and this might surprise you as a nutrient filled alternative to that horridly delicious waist-busting box of Kraft product.

      There are some great ideas here! I didn't follow the recipe exactly--I wanted to bake it, so I added 1/3 cup lowfat plain yogurt to the macaroni (I used Rozoni Healthy Harvest wheat pasta) and cheese (low fat cheddar, 8 oz) and a "buttered crumb" topping made of crushed garlic and herb All-Bran crackers and Bummel and Brown yogurt spread to the top. I'm most pleased by the idea of using squash in mac-n-cheese. It made for a nice flavor. Overall, I thought this was quite a nice substitute for mac-n-cheese, but my non-dieting husband wasn't impressed. I'm sure I'll play with this again! Thanks!
