One of my favorite meals growing up was a plate of frozen Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese, which I’d make myself whenever my parents went out to dinner. After cooking it in the oven for thirty minutes, I’d excitedly pull a stool up to our horseshoe-shaped kitchen island and dig in while watching my favorite television program, The Wild, Wild West. Pure decadence.

I recommend making this for guests and keeping the television off.

Ingredients:

1 onion, chopped

1 cup cashews

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 1/3 cups water

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

4 ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained

3 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

16 ounces whole grain elbow pasta, cooked

 

Instructions:

Sauté onion on medium heat in non-stick skillet with a little water or low sodium vegetable broth for 5 minutes, until translucent.

In a food processor, combine the onions, cashews, lemon juice, water, and salt.

Gradually blend in roasted red peppers, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Thoroughly toss the sauce with the pasta.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown on top.
