Bake on 400 until tip is brown and cheese is a little bubbly, around 10 - 15 minutes.
It was really great. The squash made this look like orange Mac and cheese but it was really healthy, and the kids liked it!
-The cheese sauce. The squash made this really orange.
It was a hit ! I love finding things to make otherwise high calorie foods, healthier!
Will definitely make this again!
