Butternut squash Mac and cheese

Feeding a toddler can be challenge. Trying to get healthy foods into them can be even more difficult.
Today’s recipe brings butternut squash into a kid favorite.
Here is the original recipe .
First thing, I put the peeled and cubed squash into a pot with veggie broth (recipe called for chicken stock), milk and garlic. I let it boil until the squash was cooked.

During this time, I was also cooking my pasta.
When the squash was cooked, I put into a blender and puréed it.

After the sauce is puréed, it is added to a bowl with the macaroni and the two cheeses. I used cheddar and mozzarella because it is what we usually have in the house, even though the recipe calls for different cheese.

Once it is all mixed up, it is put into a greased casserole dish and topped with panko.

The dish is baked for 25 minutes and then put onto broil for a few minutes. I should have had mine on broil for a few more minutes.

I have made this a few times, and my daughter absolutely loves it. Noodles are one of her favorite things to eat.
