Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes plus 3 - 4 hours or 7 - 8 hours

Ingredients:
5 oz. (about 1 1/2 cups) uncooked high-fiber elbow macaroni
4 cups cauliflower florets
3 cups butternut squash cut into 1/2-inch cubes (click for tips)
1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder 
1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1/2 cup fat-free milk
5 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup light sour cream
3 slices Sargento Reduced Fat Medium Cheddar cheese

Directions:
In a large pot, cook pasta very al dente, for about half the time indicated on the package. Drain well.

In a large bowl, combine cauliflower, squash, garlic, and seasonings. Transfer mixture to a slow cooker. (A 4-qt. slow cooker is best.)

Add cooked pasta and milk to the slow cooker, and gently stir. Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until squash is tender and pasta is fully cooked.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, stir cheese wedges until smooth. Add sour cream and cheese slices, breaking the slices into small pieces. Microwave for 40 seconds. Stir well. Microwave for another 40 seconds, or until cheeses have melted.

Stir cheese mixture until smooth and uniform, and add to the contents of the slow cooker. Stir to coat.
