Ingredients
  • ½ cup elbow macaroni*
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk
Instructions
  1. Combine the dry macaroni, water, and a pinch of salt in the biggest microwave-safe bowl you have.
  2. Microwave on high power for 2 minutes, then stir. Keep an eye on it to see if the water bubbles the side of the bowl, then stir sooner if needed. If you need to stir it, use oven mitts or a kitchen towel so you don’t burn yourself!
  3. Continue microwaving in 2-minute intervals until the pasta is cooked. Stir between each interval and continue microwaving until the pasta is soft and cooked through. This should take 4 to 8 minutes total, depending on your microwave strength. If the pasta absorbs all the water before the pasta is cooked, add another 2 tablespoons of water.
  4. Remove the bowl from the microwave (using oven mitts or a kitchen towel). Stir in the milk and cheese.
  5. In another large microwave safe bowl, add the pumpkin, nutritional yeast, dijon, garlic, salt, and pepper and stir until completely combined. Some people like garlic more than others, so start with ¼ teaspoon and go from there. Add in almond milk one tablespoon at a time until you have a creamy texture, about the consistency of cake batter but a bit thinner. I didn’t leave a measurement because pumpkin puree can vary in water content.
  6. Microwave the sauce, covered, for one minute, and stir. Microwave covered for another 30 seconds. If the sauce isn’t completely heated through, microwave in 15 second intervals until it is.
  7. Add the sauce to the cooked macaroni and stir gently to combine. Microwave uncovered for 20 seconds. Devour.
Notes
*You can use whatever kind of pasta you want: whole wheat, gluten free, low carb, whatever you want! I use the pasta from Great Low Carb Bread Company. It's fabulous considering how low carb it is.
