Macaroni & Cheese (with Butternut Squash or Cauliflower)

Monday, June 15, 2009
Another amazing recipe that my friend Myrra and I experimented with yesterday afternoon and completely approve. We went with Butternut Squash and short-cutted it by buying BS Soup and excluding milk. If you're short on time, give it a try - this seriously only took about 20 minutes. Give it a shot...

6oz elbow macaroni
1tbsp olivve oil
1tbsp plain flour
4fl oz skimmed milk
4oz butternut squash or cauliflower puree
8oz grated reduced-fat cheddar
4oz reduced-fat cream cheese
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the macaroni and cook according to the packet directions until al dente.  Drain in a colander.  

While the macaroni is cooking, heat a large saucepan over a medium heat.  Add the oil then the flour and cook stirring constantly until the mixture resembles a thick paste but has not browned - one to two minutes.

Add the milk and cook stirring every now and then until the mixture begins to thicken - three to four minutes.  Add the vegetable puree, cheddar, cream cheese and seasonings and stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.  Stir in the macaroni and serve warm.
