Mac & Pepperjack Cheeze & Peas


Once you have the Wicked Awesome Sauce made, this simple mac and cheese spin off comes together so easily for a quick, perfect comfort food classic.

You may use any one of your favorite vegan cheeses for the Awesome Sauce. We love using Follow Your Heart’s Pepperjack Slices in ours … it gives it a bit more of a spicy kick!

 

If you can’t find this brand that’s ok … just play with some of the other brands out there to figure out what you like.

 

Spiral pasta has the perfect twisty shape with lots of surface area to hold onto so much more sauce, plus they’re fun. Feel free to use your favorite pasta and switch it up each time.

 

This is great as a stand-alone dish, or perfect comfort food side to complement any meal. I like making a big batch and setting some aside for a quick heat-and-eat lunch the next day.
