Yumm-o! Made exactly as the recipe stated except for the addition of some leftover ham cut into cubes. Delicious! Next time I'll cut the pasta to a 1/2 lb because this wasn't as "saucy" as we like but that's just us and no reflection on the recipe. Next time, towards the end of cooking, I may add some frozen peas for a nice splash of color and nutrition. Thanks so much for posting this!
Wow this is good. I had only 1/2 pound of ziti pasta and made the sauce as written. It was perfect. Loved the combination of thyme and butternut squash. I will be making this again, comfort food with a twist. Thanks for sharing this recipe. A keeper!! Made for PAC spring 09.
Made the full sauce recipe for 1/2 lb of pasta, used low fat versions of everything and skipped the broiler browning but made no other changes. I'd never used frozen squash before and I was impressed with how well it worked and how great it tasted. I'll use it again. I was expecting pasta with a squash-based sauce. What I got was macaroni and cheese, fabulous macaroni and cheese. You're right, this is worthy of 27*, Blissful74.
