Let’s face it, mac n’ cheese is all about the sauce! And let me tell you, the flavor in this sauce was bangin’! Certainly not your average cheese sauce but who wants average when you can have extraordinary!?
I still kept it healthy and dairy free, but did add some goat cheese (totally optional) at the end. The best thing about this sauce is that you can always adjust to taste!
