Recipe of the Week

I have lots of moms asking me how to get their kids to eat more veggies...one way to do it, is to add it to meals where they wouldn't expect it. This is a great dish for that....and it's packed with vitamins!

Squashed Macaroni

2 cups cooked winter squash (butternut, pumpkin, etc.)

1 1/2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)

1 tablespoon miso

2 tablespoons tahini

1-2 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Black pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup spinach

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

1 pound whole grain elbow macaroni, cooked

1/2 cup walnuts, minced

Puree squash, milk, miso, tahini, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and parsley in blender or food processor until smooth. Pour sauce into medium-size pan, and warm over low heat while pasta cooks.

Toss hot sauce gently with hot pasta until evenly mixed. Pour into a serving bowl. Sprinkle minced walnuts evenly over the top.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
