Clean Eating Butternut Squash Macaroni Cheese
In this clean eating butternut squash macaroni cheese recipe, the nutritious cheese sauce is made from blended squash, garlic, rosemary and cheese.
- Put the squash, almond milk, rosemary and the peeled, quartered garlic cloves in a large saucepan. Heat the milk until it is almost boiling, then turn the heat down and simmer gently with the lid on the pan. Stir the squash every now and then to ensure all of the vegetables are submerged in the milk. Cook for 30 minutes, or until very tender.
- Remove the woody stalks of the rosemary, then allow the squash to cool slightly before blending until smooth and silky with no lumps.
- Pour the sauce back into the pan and stir in 80g of the cheese (saving approximately 20g for serving).
- Cook the wholewheat pasta according to the packets instructions. When cooked, drain and mix with the cheese sauce. Top the pasta with the remaining cheese and brown under the grill before serving.
