Dish type
Main Dish


  • 1 Butternut squash
  • 1 cup Our Family shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Full Circle Almond milk
  • 2 tsp Our Family garlic
  • 1 tsp of thyme, basil or oregano
  • 2 Tbsp Our Family Grapeseed oil


  1. Place whole butternut squash in pressure cooker on top of trivet. This recipe can also be replicated with a slow cooker or oven. Fill pressure cooker with 1 cup water. Cook on high for 25 minutes.
  2. Puree the butternut squash until it is a smooth consistency. Add 1/2 to 1 cup milk of choice depending on desired consistency.
  3. In a saucepan heat 2 tablespoons Our Family grapeseed oil. Heat 2 tsp of garlic and fresh herbs of choice (thyme, basil, or oregano) until the garlic starts to brown.
  4. Stir in the butternut squash mixture. Let simmer for 10 minutes, this will thicken the sauce.
  5. Turn the burner to low and slowly add the cheese. Turning the burner low during this period will ensure the cheese does not separate for the high temperature.
  6. Stir in 2 cups Our Family macaroni noodles.
