Pasta is a quick easy meal the whole family can enjoy. It provides endless opportunities to get creative. You can choose all kinds of cooked noodles, make your own pasta and infuse it with vegetables flavors like carrot and spinach, or even spiralize or shave raw zucchini, squash, or jicama for live pasta dishes, and then create different sauces and toppings.
You can make the experience as simple or exotic as you like.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good mac ‘n cheese. Well, this is a GREAT mac ‘n cheese with a twist. I posted this recipe on my blog this year to celebrate my January Vitamix giveaway; and seeing as I am hosting another Vitamix giveaway to celebrate being the face of the Vitamix recipe and technique videos, it prompted me to remember this trusty recipe as a wonderful “back to school” meal option.
This quick easy Gluten Free Vegan Mac ‘N Cheese is simple and delicious. It is also a perfect way to sneak some extra veggies into your children. You would never know a whole head of cauliflower was the base for this recipe. This is a fantastic vegan alternative to a traditional favorite. If you are not a fan of nutritional yeast you can always use regular dairy cheese.
This dish is perfect when you want to prepare something nutritious and fun quickly! You can complete the sauce and toppings while the pasta is cooking, and the whole meal can be ready in under 20 minutes, and that includes cooking the cauliflower!

This is a guest post written by the Paleo Parents.
Our family may eat a little different from yours. Two years ago we decided to throw out practically our entire pantry and devote ourselves entirely to eating real foods made in nature and not in factories. Along the way in this journey we shed 200 pounds, found health for everyone in our family and learned how to be a happy family.
You can call eating our way the paleo diet or the caveman diet if you wish, but we call it eating like a dinosaur, since dinosaurs only ate plants & meat. It’s a name we came up with for our three young sons. In fact, we wrote a book called just that, Eat Like a Dinosaur: a recipe & guidebook for gluten-free kids!
The central idea of the book and our overall food philosophy is that cooking and eating real foods with your kids being involved is very important. So of course, when we were asked to write a fun summer guest recipe, Wesley, two years old, dove into the kitchen to help make a summer meal!
