Not a typo....this is not Mac and Cheese. It is Mac and Squash (or pumpkin, or sweet potato). What do the three veg's have in common....they are all orange; what color is cheddar cheese...orange. Get my drift?
I found this recipe in the Charlotte Observer and just had to try it. It looked very questionable in print. And I was absolutely not going to buy a pumpkin or a butternut squash and puree it. Then, I found this on the grocery shelf.
This version of mac and cheese is seriously good. It is also a good way to hide your vegetables. I don't actually like butternut squash, but adore this. I garnished mine with fresh basil. I also used whole grain macaroni. I did not mix the prosciutto into the dish, but used it as a topping.
