Ingredients

  • 8 oz gluten free elbow macaroni
  • 10 oz bag frozen butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 3 tbs gluten free flour
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream + 1 1/2 cups water blended
  • 1 tbs fresh chopped rosemary
  • Salt & cayenne
  • Olive oil for greasing casserole dish
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • Breadcrumb Topping:
  • 3/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs* I made mine using my magic tahini seed bread, link below
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of freshly chopped rosemary
  • dab of melted butter

Instructions

  • Cook elbow macaroni according to package directions, drain well. Set aside.
  • Add butternut squash to a food processor or blender & puree until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of water & blend again. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat, add the butter.
  • When butter is melted, add your gluten free flour & whisk. Add nutmeg.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes, whisking constantly.
  • Add your water/sour cream mixture, and whisk until smooth. T
  • urn heat to high & bring to a boil while continuing to whisk. After your sauce has thickened, turn heat to low & then whisk in your butternut squash mixture.
  • Stir in fresh rosemary.
  • Add cooked elbow macaroni to the pan & then stir until noodles are well coated. Turn off heat.
  • Season with salt & cayenne (to taste).
  • Prepare your gluten free breadcrumb* topping by stirring in a pinch of rosemary, a pinch of salt & a dab of melted butter into your breadcrumbs & then tossing to coat. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Grease a casserole dish (I used a round 8″).
  • Pour half of the macaroni noodles mix into the pan.
  • Sprinkle half of the sharp cheddar/parmesan mix over the noodles.
  • Add the remaining noodles & then top with the rest of the cheese mix.
  • Sprinkle your prepped breadcrumbs on top.
  • Place your pan in a 400° F oven & bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbling & beginning to brown.
  • Remove from oven & let it sit for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

*To make breadcrumbs from leftover bread, toast slices in a 250° F oven for 10 minutes or until well toasted & dry. Pulse in food processor or mortar & pestle until crumbs are the consistency you would like.
