Weight Watchers Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese Recipe



Weight Watchers Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese Recipe. A delicious Fall comfort food dinner recipe that’s made with low fat milk, salt, elbow macaroni, dijon mustard, ground nutmeg, onion powder, water, frozen pureed butternut squash, reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese, and chopped chives.

This one pot meal is quick and easy to make, and is ready in just 25 minutes. This is a great dinner option for days when you don’t have time to make an elaborate meal.

I love this dish because it’s a hearty meal that can be made in about an hour. The butternut squash adds a great flavor to the dish. It’s a hearty vegetable with a sweet, nutty flavor. It’s perfect for roasting and can be used in soups and stews too!
