WI Cheesehead's Note:
This is an adaptation of the Deceptively Delicious macaroni & cheese recipe. I have kids with gluten and dairy allergies. This is not cheap, as you use a cheese and cream cheese substitute, but it was good enough for my husband to like it! I have tried the nutritional yeast recipes and they didn't go over as well here. At 6 servings, the size is pretty generous, as it served my family of 5 with at least 2 servings left over. Cooking time does not include cooking the noodles, as that time can vary quite a bit.
