    Burgundy Damsel's Note:

    Found this in a crock pot recipe cookbook somewhere. It doesn't actually contain any cheese, but the sauce has the same consistency of homemade macaroni and cheese, so I think that's where the name came from. Pretty good recipe as is, but excellent with a container of cottage cheese mixed in!

      I REALLY wanted to like this recipe. My kids are huge Mac & Cheese fans, and my son is not easy to get veggies into, so I had high hopes! I made it exactly as written. My son wouldn't eat it past bite one, and as my daughter muddled through her bowl my husband and I kept getting the giggles because we were having such a hard time ourselves. The earthiness of the spinach was enhanced by the cashew flavor, but the rest of the ingredients were undetectable. It was a strange combination of bland and overpowering. We tried jazzing it up with salt, pepper, cholula, and crushed red pepper, and none of it worked. I hate giving negative reviews, but I think it's important and Zaar wouldn't be the same without the rating system. Sorry, we really did want to love it!
