Vegan Mac n’ “cheese”

Mac n’ cheese? Yes please! This mac n’ cheese is the epitome of the comfort food we all know and love without the dairy. Instead, the “cheese” is made with a butternut squash blender sauce that comes together in minutes. It’s creamy, rich and will no doubt be gobbled up in minutes!
