Default Butternut Squash and Macaroni Casserole

I made this for dinner last night and it was soo good.

Found the recipe here:
Butternut Squash and Macaroni Casserole

Serves 8

Coconut milk is the unexpected, rich and delicious ingredient in this creamy casserole main dish. Substitute pecans for the walnuts, if desired.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (15-ounce) can coconut milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chopped sage
pound dried elbow macaroni
cup chopped toasted walnuts
cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly oil a 9- x 13-inch casserole dish; set aside.

Heat oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add squash, coconut milk, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until squash is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in sage and simmer 1 minute more. (This part can be made ahead, up to 1 day in advance.)

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until tender but still firm, about 8 minutes. Rinse in cold water, drain well and transfer to a large bowl. Transfer squash mixture to bowl with macaroni. Add walnuts, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Transfer to prepared dish and top with bread crumbs. Bake until just golden brown and hot throughout, about 30 minutes.

That sounds really good RG! I love butternut squash any way you make it.
Who's the smart person putting W's in the M&M's bag. Just letting you know it's not funny.
