It’s fall in Michigan, and for Al Dente, that means Pasta Season! Al Dente likes to say we have a “Pasta For Every Taste and Lifestyle.” Whether you are living Vegan, Organic, Gluten Free, Kosher, or counting Weight Watchers Freestyle points, we have a delicious option for you. Two major Holidays are here (National Pasta Day October 17th, and World Pasta Day October 25th) and we’re ready to celebrate with some colorful comfort food.

Autumn can feel like we are constantly jumping into piles of pumpkin spice. Our latest Obsession is finding easy, healthy, mac n’ cheese recipes to make with our new pasta shapes, like our Piccolo Pastas and our new Plant Based Pastas. First up: OMG! Mac N’ Cheese. It is super simple to make, and can be easily modified to fit your personal taste and healthy lifestyle. Watch this short video to learn how it’s done!

  • Make it vegan with Plant Based Pasta, cashew milk, vegan cheese, and coconut milk yogurt
  • Replace the cauliflower with broccoli, mushrooms, squash, or your favorite plant-based protein.
  • Make a “grown-up version” with GruyΓ©re instead of Cheddar
  • Replace or add other cheeses
  • Get spicy
  • Make it with the kids for an easy and quick fall activity! 5 ingredients and 5 steps!

Vegan Mac N’ Cheese we love

Even though we’re obsessed with our OMG Mac N’ Cheese, we know not everyone can indulge in the gluten and dairy. Click here to find our adapted version of Vegan Yumminess cashew mac n’ cheese.
