Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

by Erin @ Food Doodles on

I tossed a pumpkin in the pressure cooker the other day, wanting to make basic butternut squash soup (I use pumpkin in that recipe, too) but I ran out of time. Then it was a few days later and I didn’t want soup.

I wanted mac and cheese! So here we have some pumpkin mac and cheese.

Don’t have any pumpkin on hand? I’ve also got this recipe for sweet potato mac and cheese! I wouldn’t call either recipe exactly healthy, but some added veggies is always a good thing.

If you have picky eaters, you can still make this. You can’t taste the pumpkin and it doesn’t look any different than regular macaroni and cheese. I used white cheddar so if you use the regular orange stuff, this pumpkin mac and cheese will be even more orange.
