Creamy mac and cheese with hearty butternut squash, buttery sage bread crumbs and crisp bacon.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a large pot of salted water, cook pasta for about 5 minutes. It should still be very al dente. Drain and then put the pasta back into the pot and set aside.
On a rimmed sheet pan combine squash, olive oil and salt. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until squash is tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a food processor blend squash and chicken broth until completely smooth. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then add flour while whisking. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then slowly whisk in milk. Add cheese and stir until it is completely melted. Next add butternut squash puree and whisk thoroughly.
In the large pot, combine rotini and cheese sauce. Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish. Set aside.
Saute breadcrumbs, bacon bits, sage and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until bread is lightly browned. Sprinkle over rotini.
Cover the dish of pasta with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Take off foil and let it brown for another 5-10 minutes or until sauce is bubbling.
Eggplant in enchiladas? Oh yeah! This is a healthy take on a traditionally heavy Mexican dish. A cream made of pepitas replaces the usual cheese and makes this a totally satisfying vegan dish. Don’t be scared off by the prep time, most of that is in the soaking of the pepitas. Once you try this dish you’ll be wondering where these enchiladas have been all your life!
Cauliflower and Italian sausage come together with just a few ingredients for a filling and healthy one-pot dinner everyone will love! Suitable for paleo and gluten-free diets as long as the sausage meets those requirements.
