Pasta with Oven-Roasted Butternut Squash, Cheddar and Blue Cheese

This recipe comes from one of those nifty little booklets included in each issue of the Food Network Magazine that has 50 recipes of a particular food item.
This one is from "50 Twists on Mac & Cheese".
I like the recipes because they are not very involved and many sound very good.

8 ounces FUSILLI or other short pasta
1/4 c. FLOUR
2 c. MILK
Pinch of NUTMEG
1 tsp. SALT
A drizzle of OLIVE OIL
3/4 c. BLUE CHEESE, crumbled
1/4 c. each CHEDDAR AND BLUE CHEESE for topping
Freshly ground BLACK PEPPER

Peel and cube the butternut squash; drizzle with olive oil, toss and roast at 425 until tender, about 20 minutes.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain well.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk in the flour and cook while whisking for about 2 minutes then whisk in milk.
Add the bay leaf, nutmeg and 1 tsp. salt and simmer, whisking occasionally until thick, about 8 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf and add the 2 1/2 c. Cheddar cheese and 3/4 c. Blue cheese.
Stir in the pasta and the roasted squash.

Place in a casserole dish and top with the additional Cheddar and Blue cheese.

Place under broiler until cheese is melted. Season with black pepper and serve.

You should think about putting out a cookbook with your recipes and photos. This is another fab meal and another I am saving and will use. V
