Simply Quick Macaroni and Cheese

Just like a previous commenter, I recently had to go dairy-free for my nursing baby. This is so great! I froze half of this recipe, and it defrosts perfectly!

She ate two bowls and then picked of our plates as well! Will most definitely be cooking again! Just wondering ifnit will reheat well once frozen?? So great to hear!

Truth be told I also added some avocado oil and arrowroot starch to the original batch, just to give it some of the stretchiness and plastic sheen LOL of the box stuff, and, of course, to get some good fats in.

And thanks for sharing your feedback and suggestions about freezing and reheating. Appreciate it! You may need to add a bit more liquid to get the consistency but it should be an easy swap.

I would love to have this recipe doe next holiday with traditional macaroni and cheese, I wonder if my fs family will be able to tell the difference.
