Butternut Squash Mac n' Cheese

  • 2 cup butternut squash, diced
  • 2 tablespoons veggie broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Gluten Free flour
  • pinches salt, pepper, and garlic
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups broccoli (or other veggie)
  • GF bread crumbs (I have some made out of GF pumpkin bread, yum!)
  • pasta
  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add butternut squash. Cook until squash is softened and drained. Place in a food processor, add broth, and pulse until mixture is smooth. Set aside.
  2. Prepare pasta, drain and set aside.
  3. In a pan, heat butter over medium-low heat until melted. Whisk in flour and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in milk, butternut squash, salt, pepper, and garlic. Continue to whisk until the mixture begins to thicken (1-2 more minutes). Once thickened, remove from the burner and mix in cheese, continuing to whisk until melted (if the sauce seems too thick, add a little more milk.) Stir into pasta. Toss with broccoli (or chosen veggie), move to oven safe dish. Top with bread crumbs, broil until top browns.
