If you're a fan of extra-creamy and cheesy, then you're going to love our Three Cheese Macaroni and Cheese. This healthier take on your favorite American classic uses a special ingredient to take it over the top!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces whole grain elbow macaroni (about 2 cups), cooked according to package directions
  • 4 slices muenster cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place squash on baking sheet.
  2. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until a knife can easily pierce squash; let cool until able to handle, then cut in half. Scoop flesh from squash halves; discard skin. Mash squash and set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt margarine. Whisk in flour, salt, and pepper until combined. Add milk, whisking until smooth. Cook until thickened and bubbly, stirring often. Add mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses and whisk until cheeses are melted. Stir in squash and add pasta; stir until coated.
  4. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Place mixture in baking dish and top with muenster cheese slices.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is golden and casserole is bubbly.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Gotta agree with booserini 37 g carbs for cup is way, way too high for a diabetic unless that was all one was going to eat. And cup of anything is not going to be enough to satisfy most folks' hunger, a true demon when diabetic. And the so-called low-carb pastas on the market are not they just delay when it dumps into your system, so you have unexpected highs.

It left out my numeral fraction in front of cup. They should both read three-quarters cup. Also won't take any of my punctuation but periods and commas.

Some of these recipes are a bit high in carbs. Being a diabetic this looks fabulous but doesnt fit into my low carb diet

Hi there! If you're looking for low-carb recipes, simply search for "low-carb" in the Search Box in the top right corner. :) Enjoy!

This sounds absolutely fantastic. Mac 'n' cheese is my favorite pasta dish, so this is a keeper!

But it looks and sounds like its delicious...

Was skeptical at first when I read the ingredients, but I made it and it is definitely a keeper. The only ingredient I added was organic nutmeg to the cheese and squash sauce. My family rave about it. My husband being a diabetic thought it was great.
