Butternut Squash Casserole Recipe
  • 1/2     butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (2 cups)
  • 2    teaspoons   olive oil
  • 1/4   teaspoon   salt
  • 1/2   pound   whole-wheat elbows
  • 2    tablespoons   butter
  • 2    tablespoons   flour
  • 1 1/2   cups   reduced-fat milk
  • 1 3/4   cups   low-fat white cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss squash with oil and salt on a foil-lined tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until tender, set aside.
Cook pasta for 2 minutes less than package directions call for; drain and place in a bowl with squash. Meanwhile, melt butter over low heat. Whisk in flour; cook for 2 minutes.
Slowly whisk in milk. Bring mixture to a boil, then simmer. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 1/2 cups cheese; stir until melted. Stir cheese sauce in pasta and squash.
Spoon into 6 greased, individual ramekins. Sprinkle on remaining cheese. Bake 10 minutes.
