Mac N' Cheese
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash, then pierce sweet potato with a fork 6-7 times around, and place on baking sheet. Roast for 45mins-1hr, until sweet potato is fully cooked. You can tell when it's ready because it will most likely be oozing! 🙂
2While sweet potato is baking, make the pasta! I simply followed the instructions on the package. Drain pasta when ready, and set aside in a colander.
3Remove sweet potato from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Scoop out sweet potato flesh from skin**, and place in blender. Add almond milk, nutritional yeast, dijon mustard, spices, and blend until you have a 'cheesy', creamy consistency. At this point, you can add a little more almond milk if you want to thin out the cheese sauce a bit
4Add a little olive oil to a medium sized sauce pan (optional) on the stovetop, then add in the cheese sauce. Heat on medium high for a couple minutes, then add in cooked pasta. Mix with a wooden spoon until pasta is fully covered in sauce.
5Take pasta off stovetop, top with herbs, cracker crumbs, salt and pepper, and serve warm!
