    Why do you not provide nutrition information with your recipes? My daughter is diabetic and must count carbohydrates.

    Great recipe. I pretty much did exactly as the recipe said with a few minor changes. I put the onions, squash, and 6oz of non-fat greek yogurt and pureed it before adding the parm. I then mixed it with elbow noodles and told my kids it was mac n cheese. They (11 and 7) both had two servings!

    I made this with fresh squash by sauteeing the squash in with the onions, and adding a cup of chicken broth. Added great flavour! Everyone loved it :) Oh, and I pureed it with a hand-blender.

    Not bad but very bland. You need to add salt and pepper. I would also add more rosemary next time.

    This is fantastic and simple. Time consuming yes, but totally worth it!

    I left out the bread and used 100% whole wheat shells. Delicious and not heavy!

    This is an absolutely wonderful dish. I made it last night but changed the recipe a little because there are only two of us and because of the comments of it being a little dry. I used 1/2 lb of pasta, one onion, one tsp fresh chopped rosemary, salt, pepper, 2 tbsp olive oil, about 1 cup home made turkey stock, and 1 cup parmesan. I also used about 1/4 cup of my own homemade bread crumbs and a tiny bit more parmesan on top. I followed the directions with my changes and it was incredible.

    Really great dish. My husband called it a sophisticated gourmet mac n' cheese. All of the flavors really complement each other. Pretty healthy, too, unless you eat too much of it like I did! Maybe adding some more squash puree, or chicken or veggie broth would help those who found it to be dry.

    Wonderful flavor and a healthier alternative to the standard macaroni and cheese. However, mine was rather dry and I'd love to know a good way to make it more moist without sacrificing the taste.
