    Cheryle, I haven’t heard of that recipe. This recipe is mine, based on the one linked to in the recipe.

    Very delicious and healthy. I’ll try this as soon as possible. I ate something like this, but macaroni was spread with bread crumbs and baked in a oiled dish.

    Just made this for the first time, and it was epic. You must eat very small portions though, i’d say this serves three rather than six! Or am i just greedy?

    I made this last night using the salsa variation and it was delicious! I agree with the 3-4 portions, not six.

    This is one of my all-time faves! It’s one of the first vegan recipes I ever tried
    and immediately became a staple. My carnivore family requests it at almost every
    gathering. It was also a great recovery protein meal after a long 3-4 hour run
    when I was training for the LA Marathon in 2010. Thx for posting the nutrition info,
    Susan! Oh and I’ve made this with spicy tomatoes too – YUMM!!!
    Anyone who hasn’t made this yet is missing out!
    I highly recommend 2T of tahini for the extra creaminess. :-D

    Hi I’m totally knew to this lifestyle eating change, actually still in the fruit and juice detox phase. I saw this film, ‘fat, sick and nearly dead’ and I want to change my life and I know that what I put in my life has a lot to do with that. I come from an large meat/sugar/starch eating family and many illnesses has come from that. I would like that to change and it’s been a work in progress for years and I need some heavy duty recipes and support. This site looks like it will be a big help.

    I’ve made many of your recipes before, and always been impressed. This, however, was really disappointing. I made it for 5 of us and everybody’s first reaction was unpleasant. They claimed to get used to it as they persevered, but honestly it was just rather odd tasting. We’re certainly all used to healthy, vegan food, and all the ingredients were familiar to us. I don’t know what went wrong. Everyone else seems to have had success with it. I’m sure I followed the recipe to the T. I made double the amount, however, so I simply double all the ingredients…is this perhaps were I went wrong? Help!

    Hi Susan:) Your website is my go-to website for infallible delicious recipes! Thank you so much! Since you are an expert cook, I want to ask you something. I recently had to get rid of all of my kitchen equipment including my blender/processor. Do you have any suggestions on how I might do the things I used to with the aforementioned appliances without them? Like making sauces and cheese or grinding nuts. Thank you for your time:)

      That’s a tough one! I rely probably too much on my appliances. You can probably blend sauces with a whisk and a strong arm, and for nuts, I guess a good sharp knife would work. I wish I had a better answer for you!

    I made it to great acclaim, with the salsa; finished it last night, and enjoyed it cold. Thanks Susan for another.

    I make this recipe quite often. Love it, but when it says put in oven until bubbly, mine is never bubbly. Matter of a fact the cheese sauce it thick. I use salsa instead of tomatoes, but I still have to use more than called for. We have just gone to eating this without baking it. It is still good that way. My husband asks for this at least every other week.

    Question, I stumbled upon your site due to being dairy free (lactose intolerant). LOVE what I see, however, I have a very hard time digesting most whole grains, IE: whole wheat, barley, etc.. I can do oatmeal, brown rice, and corn meal (in small quantities). So, my question is…. How does nutritional yeast rank w/ whole grains?

    Hmm.. I just made this just now.. it is really not a good recipe.. unfortunately..there is no sauce after it is cooked, it just all dries up, no creaminess at all.. it is just like eating dried out macaroni with a little tad of flavor from the spices.. So I went ahead and tried again.. and this time doubled the sauce batch, and still the same..

    This isn’t really one of my favorites, either. I haven’t made it in years since I developed my Easy Mac and Cheeze.

    I made this a couple weeks ago, using fire roasted diced tomatoes with green chilis. We liked it quite a bit and I wouldn’t hesitate to make it again.

    I just made this for dinner last night. It was delicious! Even my toddler loved it! Thanks for giving me a healthy alternative to make my kids!

    great recipe! I’ve made this several times and it’s very good considering it doesn’t have real cheese.

    Is it ok to freeze this? This was my first time using nutritional yeast and unsure if you can freeze after preparing. thx!

    This looks so good. I’ve been craving cheese for months. But I have IBS, and can’t eat tomatoes or bell pepper or anything like that. Any ideas for a sub?
