Instructions:

Blend the squash and butter together using a blender or immersion blender until smooth. Stir into the pasta. Stir the cheese into the pasta. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve it up!

To make this a casserole: simply add 1/2 – 1 lb cooked ground beef into the pasta mixture. Sprinkle an extra cup of cheese on top and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Serve with a side of veggies and call it a meal!

Enjoy!
