Start cooking pasta in boiling salted water(according to packet instructions) in a pot and melt butter + garlic in a separate pan on medium-high heat until golden brown. Then add flour and 1 cup of warm milk and whisk until smooth and thickening starts.
Add the remaining two cups of warm milk + grated cheddar + butternut/pumpkin puree + seasoning(salt/pepper/nutmeg) and continuously stir on high heat for 5min or until a silky pasta sauce comes together.
Strain and add cooked pasta to the sauce + fold well with a spoon until pasta is evenly coated and dish up! Shave/grate a generous amount of hard cheese over the top just before serving :-)
