  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • Salt & pepper, to taste

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Mix chopped squash with Olive Oil, salt & pepper. Roast for about 40 minutes, uncovered, or until tender.

Add butter over low-medium heat.  Add the diced onion, cook until opaque and lightly caramelized.  Add milk; cook until the milk comes to a simmer. Add grated cheese, and stir. In a bowl, whisk together water and tapioca flour until clumps are gone. Add into pot and whisk.

  3. Cook Beat the Wheat Gluten Free Penne in boiling water for 2 minutes, rinse in cold water, let sit until sauce is made.

  4. In a blender, blend 1 cup of roasted squash, then add to the cheese sauce. (If using canned, simply stir 1 cup into the cheese sauce).
