Sweet Potato Mac

Sweet Potato Mac

Fall is coming!! And my favorite way to enjoy the season is with seasonal foods. Like apples, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes!! And of course who doesn't love a nice hearty meal when it's chilly outside. This baked sweet potato mac is the perfect meal to cozy up with when the leaves are falling. It's made of very simple ingredients that will keep you full. It is oil-free and gluten-free (depends on the pasta you use). Perfect for packing in lunches and meal prepping too! Best served with some VEGAN PARMESAN on top and some fresh herbs! I also have a regular mac & cheese recipe here!
