    pwdcrazy's Note:

    This is Rachael Ray's recipe, and it is quite tasty! I am posting it the original recipe, but I used a full box of squash for only half the recipe, reduced the oil significantly, used 1% milk, and added sage rather than nutmeg, as I am not a fan of nutmeg. It still has a very creamy texture, without all the cheese of your regular mac and cheese.

      This was good, better than I expected, I used rice pasta, and arrow root powder as a thickener to make it gluten free. All the kids liked it, and adults too!

      This was good,a nice way to get some butternut squash into a dish.I omitted the nutmeg because I find it too overpowering.Next time I make this I would also substitute the parmesan with mozza or just cut back on it a little.It made the entire dish too salty for me.I didn't have any onions on hand but I did have some leeks so I used that instead which was very good.

      Nice change of pace. I wasn't able to get the frozen squash, so made some fresh and pureed it. I omitted the hot sauce and used dried thyme, as my bush is berried under a foot of snow. LoL! Made for Food Network Challenge: HAIL TO THE CHEFS! :)
