Macaroni with no cheese!

Cheese is one of my favorite things to eat. I love cheese dip, grilled cheese, cheese on crackers, cheese with wine I could go on. This year I decided to cut down on my cheese intake I have come up with a great a mac and no cheese. It has flavor without the extra calories and fat. I hope you will try it and let me know what you think. I made this dish for my husband who likes his food to be real and tasty and he loved it.

Mac and no cheese
1 box pasta of choice- I used Gemelli pasta
Cook the pasta according to instructions on the package.

The sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups Almond milk
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 jalapeno or hot pepper chopped with seeds
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast seasoning

In a 3 quart pan melt butter. Add the flour and whisk them together to make a paste. Then add the Almond milk whisk until it becomes thick. Add celery seeds and salt and pepper. Then fold in the nutritional yeast seasoning and the hot pepper. Then fold in the cooked pasta. Serve in a bowl sprinkle with a little yeast seasoning and enjoy!
