Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

I’m back!! It’s been a while and I sincerely apologize! Life has simply gotten in the way. We have a toddler running around and a new puppy to train!



-1 whole butternut squash, peeled and diced

-small pasta shells

-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

-1-2 cups of milk

-salt and pepper to taste


  1. Peel and dice the squash. Place diced pieces in boiling water for about 8-10 minutes. Drain and set back in pot over low heat.
  2. Cook pasta shells until al dente. Drain and mix with butternut squash. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Add in milk and shredded cheese. Stir and mix well. Add more milk and cheese if needed. I like mine really creamy, so I will add a little extra milk.
  4. Place in baking dish with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. Enjoy!
