    I have made this A LOT, over the past serveral years... My family does not know the main ingredient is squash! I modify it to my liking (different cheeses, ricotta sometimes, etc.), the cayenne pepper gives it a nice underlying warmth! Get this all-star, easy-to-follow Food Network Macaroni and 4 Cheeses recipe from Ellie Krieger.
