Winter (besides cuddling) = comfort food. This week I have had a hankering for mac and cheese. My C’s love it and it was C3’s first time 🙂 (she loved it) while I love pasta, I sometimes feel guilty making it as a meal. Not because of the carb business but because it is generally lacking veggies! Sooooo I snuck some butternut squash in there and it was ah-mazing! (no one even knew!)
Sorry, there really isn’t a set recipe but here’s what I do:
Boil a package of macaroni noodles
Shred an entire block of cheese (500g bar), yup, the WHOLE thing
Peel, chop and cube a butternut squash and boil until cooked (then mash or puree)
Dump the macaroni in a covered baker, throw in cheese and mix it through, throw in butternut squash and mix it through. Add a couple of cups of milk, a few good dashes of worchestershire sauce (this is key) salt and pepper and then top with some extra cheese and Italian bread crumbs. Bake at 350 until bubbly and heated through. Mmmmm I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch!
