Vegan Cheesy Pasta Casserole

This vegan cheesy pasta casserole is a delicious vegan comfort dish you can easily make at home. You’ll fall in love with this dairy-free, melty vegan cheese sauce! 

Remember my Best Vegan Cheese Recipes Challenge? I made two recipes so far, the vegan mozzarella cheese recipe and the grilled vegan cheese sandwiches. I also made a vegan nacho cheese sauce, but I’ll post that recipe later. 🙂

This vegan cheesy pasta casserole recipe was made right after my second vegan cheese experiment when I discovered how to modify the ingredients ratios and quantities for my vegan mozzarella cheese recipe in order to turn it into a sauce as well. I wanted to make macaroni and cheese, but because I couldn’t find any gluten-free macaroni, I used fusilli instead.

You can use any kind of pasta you want. The recipe is quite simple, but the taste and texture are beyond amazing! This is an absolutely perfect comfort dish!

Just look at that bubbly, melty vegan cheese..!! It looks and tastes just like the real deal! 😀 I absolutely love it and this turned out to be by far my favorite vegan cheese sauce recipe. You won’t even miss real cheese with this recipe. It’s sticky, melty, tastes amazing and it is completely dairy-free! 🙂

What do you say? Will you give it a try? 🙂 This vegan casserole is delicious!

Jesus, this cheese is actually incredible! I can't believe a recipe like this exists, it's honestly so much better than ANY vegan cheese in the supermarkets and so much cheaper! Made your vegan cheese sandwiches and also this casserole using the mozzarella recipe and I'm in love! I will make it again and again and again! Thank for sharing :)
