Recipe of the Week

IMG 1276

Who doesn't love butternut squash - so rich in nutrients and so versatile. For years I've been making this recipe for Butternut Mac ' Cheese - that's right, a healthy version of Mac 'n Cheese, replacing the fat laden cheese sauce with butternut puree. Aunt Mamie's Italian Specialities makes the perfect pasta for this recipe, cavatalli (she'll be back next week). Serve it up with some roasted romanesco!

They're Back!
