Here's the link to that other Mac and Cheese recipe in case you are interested:


This was really good. I love nutritional yeast sauces. This one had tons of sauce and it was bubbly and delicious. If you can get it out of your head that recipes like this DON"T taste like Kraft Mac and Cheese, you will love them!  Don't call it mac and cheese for dairy eating guests or they will be disappointed. Just come up with a fancy pasta name for your dish. My other favorite on this site is called  "best macaroni and cheese, seriously". I can't decide which one I like better! I will probably make both all of the time!
