  • Mac & Cheese, Healthy Version

    Everybody loves this.  I've modified it from the original to make it simpler, and for it to have more veggies.  After roasting and then pureeing squash for this recipe several times I wised up and started buying Squash baby food - which sped up the prep for this recipe a TON. You could use all squash, or a mixture of squash and carrot or even sweet potato if you wanted to. And if you've got the time by all means cut, roast, and puree your own veggies. 

     I usually double the sauce and freeze one jar for later for a quick meal.
