Saucy Squash Created

Yesterday my sister was over watching Lochlan for me and she put some Squash in the oven, and then left.
Usually I have to have a plan when I cook Squash because Andrew doesn't eat it. Anyways, we were having pasta for dinner so I thought I would try making a sauce and if Andrew didn't like it, I would give him something out of a jar. The final product was really yummy, and even Andrew the squash hater liked it (and didn't realize it was Squash). The next night I made it again but made it a bit thicker and used it as a layer in Shepherds pie, which was also a hit.

1 half roasted Butternut Squash
1 clove garlic
1 T butter
1/4 C-1/3 C Parmesan Cheese

Puree Squash in blender and add milk until sauce is desired consistancy and add garlic. Pour into saucepan and heat over stove ;add butter and cheese, stir until hot  (not boiled).

Toss with favorite pasta, or pour over steamed veggies; I may try using this sauce as a layer in a veggie lasagne.

Yes, I generally need a plan when cooking Squamish as well ;)

I'll have to try this in Shepherd's pie too, sounds like a great way to hide veggies for the boys.
