  • Cook squash in pot of boiling water 20 min. or until tender; drain well. Spoon squash into food processor; process until smooth.
  • Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in large nonstick skillet on medium-low heat. Add flour; mix well. Cook 2 min. or until hot and bubbly, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in milk; cook on medium heat 2 to 4 min. or until sauce comes to boil and thickens, stirring constantly. Add cheeses; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until cheddar is completely melted and sauce is well blended, stirring constantly. Add squash purée, nutmeg and pepper; mix well. Cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until heated through. Remove from heat.
  • Drain pasta. Add to squash mixture; mix lightly.

Special Extra

Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.


If you prefer a thinner cheese sauce, reserve 1/2 cup water from the hot drained cooked pasta. Gradually add enough reserved water to cheese sauce until sauce is of desired consistency. Add drained pasta; mix lightly.


Substitute 4 cups small cauliflower florets for the cut-up squash.
