If you like spaghetti squash try this. If you don't care for spaghetti squash TRY THIS. This dish reminds me of a 'Mexican' flavored Mac 'n Cheese without the white-flour pasta. It was warm and satisfying and makes a delicious and different side dish to any dinner, be it holiday or weekday.

Note: If you want a little heat use pepper jack cheese on top. Otherwise any cheese you like will work.
