There are certain foods that just always fall into the category of comfort food. Macaroni and cheese is one of those. Lately it has evolved from a boxed childhood favourite to a culinary side dish. At home I use this recipe when I want something indulgent for dinner, but without the guilt. Incorporating butternut squash adds a depth the texture, while also making it healthier.
Hint: instead of using one large baking dish, use eight small ramekins for portion control!
