  • Summary

    This is mac ‘n’ cheez that’s all grown up. It’s covered with a rich butternut squash and nutritional yeast sauce that’s as nutritious as it is delicious. It's from my book, Vegan Slow Cooking for Two.

    • 11/2 cups (210 g) cubed butternut squash or other winter squash
    • 1/2 cup (90 g) chopped tomatoes
