      I had some uncooked butternut squash that needed to be used, along with some odds and ends of other root veg, so this was perfect. Did not have the provolone, so subbed in some fontina. Delicious. :)

      What a fantastic recipe! Thanks so much for posting it. I doubled the recipe as I knew that my family would want it tomorrow for lunch. I did not have provolone or shallots, so I substituted a few dollops of herbed goat cheese and added to the white sauce, and substituted diced onions for shallots. This will be a "go to" recipe for the fall. Again, thanks for sharing!

      Turned out great. I used 4 sliced turkey bacon, yellow onion, 'pizza cheese', a teaspoon of nutmeg in the cream sauce and rigatoni pasta and it was delicious! thanks for the recipe.
