Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese | The Hopeless Housewife

I made this for my very first guest post with Better Homes and Garden’s Delish Dish, here is a little sneak peak before heading one to their site to get all the details!

I have really been up to my ears in comfort food this winter. Boy, oh boy, have I overdone it. Like, seriously. If it had cheese on it, I ate it. Bacon? It was gone in a second. I am ready to lighten things up but it’s still cold outside so I want my comfort food!

I found this incredible-looking recipe on for Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese that looked so delicious so I changed some things around a little and made this lightened up version. Because of the moist and flavorful butternut squash, this will still be gooey and flavorful even with low fat milk and reduced fat cheese…and, sigh…no bacon. But seriously, you won’t miss any of these things!

Check out how to make this over at’s  Delish Dish.

    Looks great, but I can’t seem to find the recipe on here or on Delish. Am I missing something?

      There is a link on the post that takes you to the Better Homes and Gardens recipe, I lightened it up by using 1% milk, reduced fat cheese and omitted the bacon…
