The Italian-Accented Mac 'n' Cheese
This take on crowd-pleasing baked ziti (which actually calls for penne) is plenty cheesy, thanks to a mixture of Fontina, blue cheese, Pecorino Romano and Parmesan. But instead of a tomato-based sauce, the dish relies on two surprise ingredients: roasted butternut squash and sage. They lend depth you don't usually find with acidic (read tomato-y) sauces.
