Squash and Goat Cheese Mac and Cheese

I have truly learned to love the Mac and Cheese, though it rarely is made with macaroni in our house.

Its a great, fairly quick recipe that I know I will always have everything on hand. The other great thing is all the other stuff you can toss in. I made this with left over roasted squash, caramelized onion and goat cheese.

The sauce was extra creamy and the kids loved it.

Squash Mac and Cheese
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs flour
1 1/4 cup milk
about a cup cooked squash
3 - 4 oz goat cheese
some caramelized onion (maybe about half an onion)
1/2 lb cooked pasta of your choice
salt and pepper

Begin by making roux with the flour and butter. Heat over medium flame until it begins to bind and form a paste.


Add the milk and continue to cook, while stirring, until it thickens.Remove from heat and add the squash, onions and cheese.



Add the pasta a stir to coat. Then place in a baking dish and cook in 400 Deg oven about 10 minutes until warmed through.


You can add bread crumbs to the top or extra cheese.
