We were really in the mood for something gooey and cheesy, so we attempted a butternut squash mac and cheese. Unfortunately, despite the copious amounts of cheddar in the sauce, the mac and cheese was missing something. It was good - because you really can't go wrong with mac and cheese, can you? - but was ultimately a bit bland. This was our first time making mac and cheese, so I guess we now have a base recipe that we can play with and try to perfect.
