John's 1 Pot Vegan Creamy Pasta

John is the Founder and CEO of StickerGiant


John chose this recipe because he loves the taste of macaroni and cheese, and it’s one of his favorite foods. When he switched to a plant based diet, this was one meal he did not want to miss out on, and so discovered a tasty way to make this favorite as a plant based, and vegan, meal. This dish is a great way to warm up the belly after a long cold day training dogs outside in the mountains of Colorado.
