3 Ingredient Mac & Cheese? It can be done and it's also very, very tasty.

I know that many of you have very tight schedules, very busy everyday life and don't have infinite time to spend in the kitchen (I'm one of you). So I like to prepare for you easy, quick recipes that you can prepare even in less than 15 minutes.

This is one of those recipe. It's actually ready in 12-13 minutes. You will need almond milk, small pasta like shells (Mac & Cheese is usually made with this kind of pasta) and grated vegan cheese (preferably cheddar).

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of almond milk, you can use milk of your choice, even light.

Instead of a shells you can use another small pasta.

In place of the vegan cheddar you can put whatever grated cheese you want or non-vegan cheddar.

Note: This recipe requires you to be constantly on top of the pot as the pasta has a tendency to stick to the bottom. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
