Butternut squash mac and cheese is a serious game changer. I mean, is there anything better than a healthier version of your favorite comfort food and a glass of wine on a weeknight? I really don’t think so.
I won’t lie to you, this is not the mac and cheese you’re used to. It’s difficult to create mac and cheese without the cheese. But, it’s a close second and it’s healthy. A combination of herbs and spices and a crispy walnut topping creates an amazing texture that you will want to keep in your weeknight meal rotation. I combined this recipe with a little inspiration from Snap Kitchen (they sell an excellent chicken butternut macaroni, which you could easily add to this recipe).
