Pumpkin goes great with espresso and milk, but we’ve found an even better combination: pumpkin and gooey, melted cheese. Put down the pumpkin spice latte and try making a savory squash dish this fall, like Pumpkin Lovers’ Lasagna (pictured above) and other easy, comforting pasta dishes that will warm you from the inside out.

Don’t use artificial cheese powder to make your macaroni and cheese orange — try the natural dye of butternut squash.
