Harvest Mac and Cheese

Posted Nov 16th, 2015

1 cup Clearly Organic Whole Wheat Rotini
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1 Tablespoon butter
1 small yellow onion
1 small butternut squash (4-5 cups cubed)
4 cups Clearly Organic Chicken Broth
3/4 cup Clearly Organic Milk
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shredded cheese (Sharp cheddar or Gruyere work best, but any cheese will work)
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook rotini noodles according to package directions. Add cauliflower to water in the last 4 minutes of cooking then add broccoli in the last 2 minutes of cook time. Drain noodles, cauliflower and broccoli and set aside. Heat butter in a large sauté pan over medium to low heat. Cut yellow onion into rings and add to butter in the sauté pan. Continue cooking on low until onions are translucent and fragrant, about 20 minutes. Keep heat low to prevent burning. While onions caramelize remove skin and seeds from squash. Cut squash into small cubes. Bring broth to a boil and add squash. Cook for about 7 minutes or until fork tender. Reserve 1/2 cup broth and then drain squash and transfer to a food processor or blender. Add onions, milk, salt and reserved broth to processor or blender. Purée until completely smooth and creamy. Should yield about 4 cups. Pour the puréed sauce over the cooked noodles and broccoli. Add shredded cheese and stir to melt. Add milk to adjust consistency, if needed. Serve with avocado and hot sauce as a garnish if desired.
