Craving mac & cheese but don’t want to overindulge? This gluten-free dish is your answer. It’s just a touch sweet and cheesy and a delicious base for extra veggies!

The Recipe


  • 1¼ cups broth using Massel Concentrated Liquid Stock OR Ultracubes, vegetable or chicken-style
  • 3 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 450g gluten-free pasta
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ cup Italian seasoned OR gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add butternut squash, stock, milk and garlic. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until the squash is tender (about 20 minutes).
  2. Remove from heat and add to the base of a blender or immersion blender. Add in the Greek yogurt and season with ground pepper. Blend until smooth, and then add Swiss and Parmesan cheeses. Blend again until combined and cheese is melted.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  4. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
  5. Meanwhile, heat butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. When pasta is done, drain and add it directly to the cheesy squash mixture.
  7. Add the toasted breadcrumbs to the mac and cheese. Serve with chopped parsley and enjoy!
