Acorn Mac & Three-Cheeses with Caramelized Shallots


OK, so there’s no macaroni in this, since macaroni is made from whole or enriched grains which isn’t Paleo 2.0.  Instead it’s made from the flesh of an Acorn Squash.  However it does have cheese in it, in fact three types.  There’s just no way to make a Mac & Cheese without the cheese.  Since there are three different types of cheese in this comfort food, this isn’t an everyday meal.  If your goal is to lose weight and your following a paleo/primal diet, you should stay away from this meal.

4 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 Acorn Squash
  • 2 tbsp of Butter, clarified
  • 3 shallots
  • 1/2 lb Ground Beef
