Mac n Cheez

This recipe was created out of sheer hunger and not having planned anything to eat, so it had to be quick and easy! 

High fiber AND protein are very important in my diet so I reached for Maria’s Noodles yellow pea pasta.   Next, I wanted something rich and flavourful and sinfully delicious without dairy! Voila this is a delicious healthy, gluten-free and vegan mac and cheez. 

I’m sure you will love every tasty bite!

2 tbsp nutritional yeast
