Noodles and CheezeWe made this dish last night and we happily surprised with it. We can't quite call it Mac n Cheeze because we had to use fusilli and fettuccine noodles - we were low on noodles but had enough of each to make a full meal. Because of the fettuccine noodles, we thought it would be best not to bake the dish in the end.
Some things that struck us is that 1) we had to half the recipe because we didn't need all that sauce, nor did we have 1 1/2 cups of the nutritional yeast. I don't know what it is, but i am always wanting to save on the yeast - call me a Scrooge i guess! 2) The sauce needed an extra kick. We added the tomato paste as suggested and some cut up tomatoes, but J was dying for some veggie sausage or 'something.' He also said it would have been good to counter the flavour with some dijon mustard. He thought it tasted too nutritional yeasty.
But, the consistency and texture was right on, which was the nice surprise. The other great surprise was that J made it all without me. I am a weakling on Fridays, after a long week at work, so while i curled up on the couch and had a nap, he made this dinner for us. Thanks, hon. He's an honourary member of this group!
