This is a West Indian spin on one of the world’s most famous foods: mac and cheese. Mac and cheese is described as simple, comforting, and addictive. For me, mac and cheese is al dente pasta covered with a creamy cheese sauce. Calabaza squash, with its vibrant color and sweet taste, stands in for the cheese, and creamy coconut milk enhances the sauce. This dish can be baked if you prefer a mac and cheese casserole.
