Recipes for Homemade Mac & Cheese and Squash Casserole

I haven't shared a recipe on my blog in awhile, so I thought I would share a few now. 

On Easter Sunday this year, my parents came over for Easter lunch and there were two dishes I served that I thought were blog worthy.  :)

The first recipe is for homemade Mac & Cheese and I'm sure everyone has their favorite recipe for noodle and cheese goodness, but I thought I would share it anyway since my parents and my family really enjoy this version.  The other dish I served was a Squash Casserole.  These were both easy and delicious.  Both recipes were given to me by dear friends of mine in my homeschool group. 

Homemade Mac & Cheese

(1) 16 oz. package of elbow macaroni
5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups milk
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Cook macaroni; Drain. Layer 1/3 macaroni in lightly greased 9 x 13 in. casserole dish.  Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese; repeat procedure and top with remaining macaroni.  Reserve remaining cheese. 

Combine milk, eggs, salt and pepper; pour over macaroni and cheese.  Cover and bake at 350 for 45 min to 1 hour.  Uncover and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Cover and let stand 10 min. before serving.   

Squash Casserole

6 cups sliced squash (I use combo of zucchini and yellow squash)
3 TBS butter
1 onion
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can of cream of mushroom soup
1 cup (8 oz.) sour cream
1 (6 oz.) box instant corn bread stuffing
1 small can chopped green chiles
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a heavy skillet melt butter, cook squash and onion until tender.  Drain well. 

In a bowl combine the next 4 ingredients plus salt and pepper.  Mix well. 

Fold in squash mixture and pour into a greased 2 quart baking dish (or crock pot).  Sprinkle with cheese. 

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  (Crock pot on low for a couple of hours).

If you give these recipes a try, I hope you will enjoy them as much as our family does!

Yum. We usually end up with an abundance of squash in our garden so new recipes for cooking it are always welcomed. And who doesn't love mac and cheese.
