Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Special Extra
Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
If you prefer a thinner cheese sauce, reserve 1/2 cup water from the hot drained cooked pasta. Gradually add enough reserved water to cheese sauce until sauce is of desired consistency. Add drained pasta; mix lightly.
Substitute 4 cups small cauliflower florets for the cut-up squash.
