Squasharoni and Cheese

A hybrid of Recipe #135350 and Recipe #395105 that I made up. My version is far easier, and is no-bake to really enjoy the rich flavor and creaminess of the sauce. I bet pumpkin puree would be good in this too, by itself or to do half and half. Butternut squash is the best but I used winter squash puree from the freezer section cuz I'm lazy. :)
