Gluten-Free Macaroni & Cheese Recipe
Updated: Mar 8
Over the past few months, I've been really active in the kitchen. I now love trying new recipes and recently, I came across a fun recipe that made my tastebuds extremely happy.
For anyone wondering, I tried a butternut squash version of macaroni & cheese. Growing up I had never been a fan of macaroni unless it was baked (like we do it in The Bahamas). BUT I love squash and I love pasta!
Since I've been gluten-free for some years now, I decided to attempt the combination/ inventive version of macaroni & cheese, and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised.
So, if you're looking to add some range to your pasta dishes I highly recommend you try the recipe below!
P.S. ---You don't have to be gluten-free to make this dish- just substitute the gluten-free pasta for regular macaroni noodles!
