Creamy cheesy pasta THAT DOESN'T SUCK: gluten free & dairy free

Let's get real for a second. Dairy free cheese is just plain NOT good. There are some products that suck less than others, but they just aren't great. They are nothing close to the real thing.

I've been making different versions of cheesy pasta (sort of a white mac & cheese) forever and I finally just broke it down to the basics and went with the most simple recipe I could think of and you know what? IT WAS AMAZING. Not only that, after I posted it on Instagram I had multiple people reach out and say they tried is and loved it as well!

I call that a win!

This recipe only requires FOUR ingredients. Seriously. It's going to kick any cheesy craving you have and it's actually going to taste good. It may never beat that delicious Kraft mac & cheese deliciousness, but it'll definitely get the job done. If you and your kids need a super simple week night meal or someone just needs a little comfort food in their life, this is the quick recipe you'll want to have saved.

When it comes to dairy free products, I've gotten very picky. Tofutti cream cheese is one of the products that I keep multiple of in my fridge at all times. My husband eats it often as well and gives it a thumbs up! That, coming from someone who can eat regular cream cheese alllll he wants. We use their sour cream pretty often as well.

Give this recipe a try - let me know what you think! I'd love to know what variations you made of it as well. I love seeing the different spin people take on my recipes. If you make it, don't forget to tag me on Instagram! And as always, thank you so much for being sure to give me a follow on Facebook and Instagram. You guys are the freaking best!
