This is one of those recipes that came together in my head and I kept thinking about it until I made it. I've made it twice now, the second time to remember what I did to make it (and to eat it again!).
For 2-3 servings
Pasta of your choice- I used half of 12 oz bag of organic trottole from Target
Frozen Butternut Squash- 12 oz bag
Frozen Grilled Cauliflower- 8 oz (I used half of a 16 oz bag)
Frozen Mixed Vegetables 1- 2 cups
Nutritional Yeast - 2TBS
Lemon Juice - 1 TBS
Garlic Powder 1/2 tsp
Paprika - pinch plus more for the top
Cayenne Pepper 1/8 tp
Fine Grain Sea Salt 1 tsp
Dairy free milk of choice 1/4-1/2 cup (optional)
and other spice ingredients. You can add some dairy free milk here too. The first time I made it I added 1/4 cup of almond milk but the second time I made it without. Both turned out great.
Pour sauce over pasta/veggie combo and add a sprinkle of paprika (optional). Serve immediately or pour into a baking dish, add breadcrumbs and bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
Easy, creamy and HEALTHY mac and "cheese" in under 30 minutes. It's a perfect weeknight meal for when you forget your family expects dinner every night.
