    I'm sorry, while this was certainly healthy and not bad tasting it tastes NOTHING like macaroni and cheese. I would have to agree with Paula - it's just "okay". The problem is - when you want something like Mac and cheese, even a healthy alternative needs to live up to the original dish in some way, and none of the favors resembled the original comfort food. I've tried some weight watcher versions of the recipe that are actually really good and far less complicated to make. Also, I'm surprised that some of the reviewers managed to fool their kids. Mine were not fooled and I had a hard time convincing them to eat it - and they had no idea about the squash.

    This sauce is incredibly delicious. It doesn't taste quite like the mac and cheese I'm used to, but way better than I was expecting for a lower calorie, healthier version. The only issue I had with this recipe was that I had to roast the butternut squash about 10 minutes longer, and I still didn't get a very smooth puree, so I added a little chicken stock, and that helped it puree better. I'm not a huge fan of pecorino, so I subbed 1/4 cup of parm and 1/4 cup of goat cheese for that, and that combined with a sharp cheddar gave it an amazing cheesy, tangy flavor. It contrasted nicely with the hint of sweetness the butternut squash adds. I also baked it in one big dish for 20 min. instead of individual dishes. I will definitely be making this again.

    This is the best healthy mac & chs we've ever had. We love mac & chs and have been trying to find a healthy alternative for awhile but they all are tasteless and the texture is horrible, not this one, this one is full of flavor and has great texture. We were very hesitant of trying it especially after watching the episode when Paula said she didn't like it..Paula, I'm sorry, you're wrong...it's great! We have made it a few times and it is hasn't failed us yet. We even served it to an unexpected guest one night and he really enjoyed it too.

    Really good. Have not made homemade Mac and cheese in a long time and worried my family would not like it....but they did, and want me to make it again. They had no idea there was squash in it! So good and good for you. Great for a crowd.
