This Mac and Cheese is super cheesy (but in a healthy way, if you know what I mean), oil free, and It’ll take you 10 minutes or less to make.

The recipe is meant for 2 people, if you've got more folks in you family, -double it! 😉

I’m using Natural cream cheese in the video, but of course Smoky would be perfect too, and you don’t need to use nutritional yeast and smoked paprika with it.

Marmite can be swapped for some sea salt, if you prefer, and turmeric is optional, but it gives your pasta bright yellow colour which I love. Besides, turmeric is so healthy, so why not add st least 1/4 tsp!?

If even 10 minutes seems like ages, I’ve got another shortcut for you: just add a few spoons of Smoky in your pasta and mix it in - so easy that you’ll think you’re cheating 🤫

If you watch my 1-minute vide, you probably don't even need to read the steps, but I've written them down for you just in case. 😘

🧚 Enjoy 🧚
