About this recipe: If you're trying to eat better but still love your comfort food, this is for you. Likewise, this is a great way to get kids to eat their veg without them knowing it! A lovely macaroni cheese that tastes every bit as indulgent, but with some added goodness.
Instead of mashed sweet potato, you could also try mashed butternut squash in this recipe.
took a while to make, but definately worth it. I normally put sweet potato in my macaroni but this has some added extras and even my fussy 6yr old loves it - 04 Jul 2010
Dianne, thank you!!! My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. I scaled it back to 4 servings and still filled a large casserole dish. I made a few changes, and it was excellent: cornstarch instead of flour/butter roux, cayenne powder instead of red pepper flakes, Italian-seasoned bread crumbs instead of plain, fat-free evaporated milk and fat-free sour cream, and sprayed the top of the casserole with non-stick cooking spray instead of dotting with butter. After it baked for 30 minutes, I switched to broil on Low for a couple minutes to brown the topping and make it crispy. I will be making this again for Christmas eve, but with 8 servings this time for the family. THANK YOU AGAIN! - 20 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good. The kids liked it and the men did too. It took me a while to make it though. I had to boil and then mash the sweet potatoes. I would make it again and recommend it to others. - 01 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
