The perfect addition to your vegan holiday feast! Pastry crust is crisp and crumbly, while macaroni and cheese fill it. From the crust to the gooey, cheesy mac & cheese inside, this dairy-free version is spot on. Because of the uniqueness of the way these ingredients blend together, you’ll likely be dumbfounded when you take your first mouthful into this dish. When making this recipe, you may either make a giant pie or several smaller ones if you want to serve it as an appetizer.

  • Now boil your pasta until halfway cooked. Mix together pasta and sauce then transfer to pre-made cornbread crust.
