Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

It's been snowing off and on all this past week (?!?!), which means we've been holing up and craving warm comfort foods (again).  I noticed this mac 'n' cheese recipe on The Kind Life, and adapted it slightly to round it out for more of a complete meal.

The recipe called for a lot of oil, so I reduced that to 2 tablespoons. I used penne noodles, and I also added in a few handfuls of chopped greens to the pasta right before I drained it, and then tossed it with the sauce and some white beans, and sprinkled a few pine nuts on top. Obviously since it is vegan, it isn't going to taste like "regular" mac 'n' cheese, but if you are already a fan of nooch (nutritional yeast) or are up for trying something new, I'd recommend it. And yes, we really did eat our mac with chopsticks. Nom nom nom.

Mac 'n cheese is the ultimate comfort food! Crazy that it's snowing there and not in Michigan. We're due to get hit this week. :/
