Pumpkin Veggie Mac & Cheese

Hi friends!
Jumping on here real quick to say hello, happy October and happy national noodle day!
Since it is fall I have been craving more comfort foods! Even though the weather here in Houston has still been pretty warm but that is not stopping me from making more fallish recipes! 🙂
This have been a little nutty, and I will be posting a real update soon!

Today I am linking up today for Foodie Friday with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Farrah from Fairyburger for our noodle themed week!

    Yayy! Definitely looking forward to trying this out! I’m not the biggest fan of cheese-cheese (some exceptions), so that almond milk cheese sounds awesome!!
