CHEESY AUTUMN BUTTERNUT SQUASH MACARONI

CHEESY AUTUMN BUTTERNUT SQUASH MACARONI

Serves 6-8

 

1 diced butternut squash or other winter squash

1 (798mL) can diced tomatoes

2 cups water

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 sprig fresh thyme or 1½ Tbsp dried thyme

2 sprigs fresh rosemary or 1 Tbsp dried rosemary

1 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1½ cups unsweetened non-dairy milk

1 bag (454g) uncooked macaroni

Salt and pepper, to taste

Variations: Add in some chopped greens or fresh broccoli.

Add the first ingredients (squash through to rosemary) to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Purée the contents of the slow cooker with an immersion blender, then add the nutritional yeast and milk (spiral the milk into the mixture, so the temperature shock isn’t too great). Stir in the macaroni, cover, and cook on high for 30 minutes.

Stir well and add more milk if the sauce is getting too thick. Cook for 15 to 25 minutes more or until the pasta is al dente. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Make sure to check on the pasta every 10 minutes or so until you get good at gauging how fast it will cook in your slow cooker. It cooks faster in the smaller slow cooker.
