Easy-Peasy Macaroni and "Cheezy"

I used to love macaroni and cheese as a kid. Obviously... I mean, what kid doesn't love neon orange deliciousness in a box? However, later in life I realized that the ingredients in packaged mac and cheese aren't actually really food and starting experimenting with my own healthier, vegan, version. I had a few passable recipes, but nothing spectacular until yesterday when I decided to give it another go. I came across a tasty sounding recipe over at the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen, then switched it up to suit my tastes and the contents of my kitchen. The result was delicious. The sauce is creamy and cheesy- perfect over pasta but also would be awesome over veggies, or as a nacho cheese sauce (especially if you dial up the spice factor). I used gluten free, organic brown rice pasta, but any kind will do. As an added bonus, it's really quick and easy to make... see for yourself:
