This butternut squash macaroni is one way to infuse fall flavor into your everyday meals. Created by Brandon at the blog Kitchen Konfidence, the autumnal mac and cheese recipe makes a rich and creamy dish full of seasonal elements.

Perfect for dinner or lunch, the butternut squash macaroni and cheese calls for ingredients such as dry pasta (shells work well), onion, garlic, fresh thyme, flour, milk, unsalted butter, kosher salt, grated sharp cheddar cheese, canned butternut squash (canned pumpkin would also work), dijon mustard, nutmeg, cayenne pepper and freshly ground black pepper. The bread crumb topping consists of fresh bread crumbs plus chopped fresh sage, grated parmesan cheese, unsalted butter, kosher salt and more black pepper.

There is lots of room here for experimentation with variety of squash too.
