Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese

1 cup butternut squash
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 serving Non-Gmo Earth Balance Buttery Spread
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp cornstarch
6 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp garlic powder
8 oz. Brown Rice Pasta
2 cups Chopped Kale

Recipe Directions for Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a casserole dish with tin foil. Mix chopped squash with EVOO, S & P. Roast for about 40 minutes, uncovered, or until tender.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the cheeze sauce in a pot on the stove top. Add Earth balance over low-medium heat. In a bowl, whisk together milk and arrowroot powder (or cornstarch or flour) until clumps are gone. Add into pot and whisk. Stir in remaining ingredients (nutritional yeast, Dijon, garlic, S & P) and whisk over low heat until thickened (about 5-7 minutes or so).

  3. Cook your pasta according to package directions. The sauce makes enough to cover 4 servings of pasta.

  4. In a blender, blend the sauce with 1 cup of roasted squash (or if using canned, simply stir 1 cup into the pot).

  5. Add cooked, drained, and rinsed macaroni into pot, along with cheeze sauce & mix-ins. Heat and serve.

  6. Notes: 1) My 3.5 pound squash made 5 cups cooked squash, so I had about 4 cups leftover. 2) The sauce does not cut in half well (the blender has a hard time blending it up), 3) I tried this recipe with canned pumpkin and it was awesome!
