Author Notes

Your family will be none the wiser when you offer up this vegan mac and “cheese”. The pureed squash mimics the creamy texture a traditional cheese sauce would offer, and since it is made using gluten-free macaroni shells, you could confidently serve it to gluten-intolerant folks as well as those on a calorie-restricted diet. With a supper that will mac everyone smile, you are certainly squashing the belief that cheese is necessary at all…
