‘Tis The Comfort Food Season: Healthy, Delicious & Nutricious Mac And Cheese Recipe

By Chef Candace Kumai | Everyday Health

When it comes to comfort food, does it get any better than gooey homemade macaroni and cheese? Instead of a typical heavy sauce laden with butter, Chef Candice Kumai calls upon on an unlikely hero in this lightened up version: butternut squash, which adds a rich flavor to the dish and mimics the creamy texture and even color of a traditional cheddar sauce. You’ll still taste plenty of cheese – the shredded Swiss cheese is melted heavenly on top – but you’ll save hundreds of calories and sneak in a sweet, antioxidant-packed veggie. Almond milk, panko bread crumbs and even red pepper flakes (they’re optional) are also used to help make this recipe a winning “Meatless Monday” concoction the whole family will love – one that can be prepped, cooked, and on the table in under an hour.
