I could not believe how unbelievable this macaroni and cheese recipe is! It looked just like mac and cheese out of a box (which is what my dd knew and loved) and tasted great. As someone who eats dairy regularly, nothing beats the original. But I have to admit that I would be willing to eat this stuff on its own, it tastes that good, but only if I acknowledge it as pasta in sauce, not as mac and cheese per se. But my dd hasn't had cheese in over a year, and she thinks this stuff is manna from heaven. Takes only about 20 minutes to prepare--and all on the stove! Gluten free, soy free, dairy free, casein free, etc. Heck, it's even a vegan recipe if you get the right noodles! Please leave feedback and advice on any variations. Thanks!
