Sweet potato sounds like an amazing addition to mac and cheese. Butternut squash sounds really great too. I like it's flavor and creamy texture even though it's probably the most difficult vegetable for me to peel and cut up. Before now, l only made mac and cheese from the box and the only addition I knew of was canned tuna! This recipe is definitely an eye-opener.

This recipe looked very interesting. I was intrigued to know how macaroni was made with sweet potato, thinking it may be like some kind of gnocchi but I see that the 'secret is in the sauce!' I agree it is an excellent way to incorporate vegetables without your kids noticing. I like those kinds of recipes. I also thought that you use butternut instead of the sweet potato. I am sure that would work.

Yum! My roommates and I love sweet potatoes so this would be a perfect meal for us to make together! Also, this recipe cuts back on a lot of the added fat, sodium, and calories that cups and cups of cheese would add.

Mac and cheese is always a hit with our family and we all love sweet potatoes too so this dish was a sure winner! I didnt use the flour, I added a little cream to the mashed sweet potato as it was quite dense and sprinkled a little grated parmesan on the top before baking. These were small changes, though - the recipe is really tasty and i will definitely be making it again and again.
