SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was very good. Especially after sitting for a little while. I used salt instead of the vegisal because I couldn't find any, and I forgot to put veggies in it. After I stuck it in the oven, I looked over, and the veggies were sitting there on the counter.lol. It was still very good without them. I had quite a bit of cheese sauce left over so I think I'll try eating it with the veggies I forgot  :)

I meant to add, use UNSWEETENED SOY MILK otherwise the cheese will be sweet and nasty.  The best pasta to use is spaghetti with broccoli.  Also season spaghetti/veggies before topping with cheese.
