Macaroni is a comfort food for many and this homemade mac and cheese version cleverly incorporates seasonal fall veggies into the cheesy dish. The meal is filled with spices, cheese and veggies to create a delicious pasta dish that is hearty and perfect for cooler days.

The dish begins with fresh butternut squash that is cubed and steamed. The gourd is then combined with milk, cheddar cheese and aromatic spices such as garlic powder, black pepper, salt and paprika for an added kick. To complement the squash, cheddar is used instead of a white cheese. The sauce is creamy and thick in texture thanks to the squash that adds a subtle earthy flavor to the dish. The end result is a macaroni and cheese dish that is delicious, made from scratch and much healthier seasonal alternative to any pre-packaged foods.
