You guys… I swear… I would never fib to you. So I am serious when I say, if I didn’t know this was made with butternut squash and was healthier, I would have no idea. It works, seriously, and it is SO delicious.
My husband and I made it last week because I have been craving mac n cheese, and then a friend posted this recipe in our Challenge Group so my mind connected the dots and voila, dinner idea!
We didn’t use parsley, but it was optional anyways. I personally prefer cavatappi for my mac and cheese’s, and I have yet to find whole wheat cavatappi, so even still with it being healthier, it was still a splurge (but if you follow my blog you know by now that I firmly believe in splurging and not denying myself – portion control is key here!)
We used our immersion blender and it worked perfectly. Husband was even impressed, which always makes me happy! Delicious and we will make it again, absolutely!
Have you ever tried Butternut Squash? It’s a great way to sneak veggies in for kiddo’s who may not be a fan of them, too. For the record, I’m not advocating lying, I am just saying, sometimes, with some picky eaters, what they don’t know not only WILL NOT hurt them, but will help them! 😉
With a rich array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as significant amounts of digestive fiber, Butternut squash is up there as one of the most nutritious veggies you can have!
