Simple Mac-N-Cheese Shells

  • Half a package of pasta shells
  • 2 Tbl Earth Balance
  • 1 cup of coconut milk (for a lighter, thinner option, choose unsweetened, plain almond milk or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
  • ½ cup of nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • ½ tsp salt
  • pepper to taste
  • basil for garnish
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile prepare your cheese sauce.
  2. Melt your butter over medium low heat.
  3. Add in your coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk) and whisk for about 2 minutes until it reaches a very light simmer.
  4. Add in your nutritional yeast, garlic powder, turmeric, and salt.
  5. Whisk until everything is well combined, making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of your saucepan. If its starting to boil or stick, lower heat.
  6. Once your sauce has thickened and everything is well incorporated, pour over your cooked noodles, top with pepper and chopped basil, and serve immediately.
