    Came out great!!! I pureed the squash mixture instead of mashing it, and added a sautéed onion with a few tablespoons of butter before returning the squash mixture to the pot. I also melted my cheese with with squash before mixing it with the pasta. Made plenty for leftovers,

    Very disappointed. Loving both main ingredients, it didn't seem that they came together in the finished dish. The squash overpowered the cheese and its texture isn't very creamy.

    'Excellent! I made it with whole wheat pasta and a littler extra pepper. Tastier then regular Mac 'n Cheese and not greasy.

    I modified this completely and it worked out great for my two picky toddlers. We cooked the squash in the oven first, then pureed it and the heat melted all of the other ingredients... skipped the milk and added a little chicken broth. I also used rice macaroni instead. Delicious! And it didn't sit in your tummy like a loaded brick like traditional mac n cheese.

    So disappointing! Bland, tasteless; the whole dish ended up in the garbage.
