COOKING VIDEO: A Recipe For Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

 

Now that she’s a mom, says the cook in the video, she’s become “notorious for sneaking vegetables into everything.”

But we don’t think butternut squash needs to be “sneaked” into the recipe. We love the idea of this seasonal mac and cheese.

For added flourishes to the recipe in the video, how about:

  • A garnish of shaved Parmesan, Cheddar, chèvre or other favorite cheese (you can also change up the cheeses in the recipe, Parmesan and Cheddar).
  • A sprinkle of pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) or toasted walnuts. Pepitas are the Spanish name for pumpkin seeds. Like many seeds, they’re a heart-healthy ingredient: full of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3s, which contribute to maintaining good cholesterol.
  • Diced butternut squash or other squash favorite, steamed and seasoned.
