Non Stick Cooking Spray
1 lb Butternut Squash, halved and seeded
8 oz dry whole grain elbow macaroni ( about 2 cops)
4 tsp. butter
2 Tbsp All purpose flour
tsp salt
⅛ tsp white pepper
1 cup fat free milk
2 tbsp semi-soft cheese with garlic and fine herbs
cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (3 oz)
cup shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese ( 3 oz)
2 oz Muenster cheese, very thinly sliced

1. Pre-heat over to 375 F. Line a 15-20 in baking pan with parchment paper. Coat a 2- quart square baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Coat the cut sides of the butter nut squash with cooking spray; place squash halves, cut sides down, on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 40-45 minutes or until squash is very tender and cooked through. Remove from oven, let stand until cool enough to handle. Scoop flesh from squash halves; discard skin. Using a potato masher, mash the squash.
3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain well.
4. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour, salt, and white pepper until combined. Add milk, whisking until smooth. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add semi-soft cheese, whisk until cheese is melted. Stir in mashed squash. Add cooked pasta; stir until coated.
5. Place half of the pasta mixture in the prepared baking dish. Evenly sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese and half of the cheddar cheese on top of the pasta. Arrange half of the Muenster cheese over all. Repeat layers. Bake about 25 minutes or until cheese is golden.
