INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the produce

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta. Peel and roughly chop the onion(s) and garlic.

2
Make the sauce

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, chopped garlic, white miso paste, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add flour to the skillet and stir. Add almond milk, whisk, and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens, 3 to 5 minutes.

3
Cook the pasta

Add pasta to the boiling water, stir, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse the pasta and return to the large pot, off heat.

4
Blend in the cheese

Add almond milk mixture, cheddar cheese, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a blender. Blend cheese sauce until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and mince the pickled jalapeños. Mince the roasted red peppers.

5
Make the pepita parm

Roughly chop the pumpkin seeds. Add chopped pumpkin seeds, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt to a small bowl, and mix the pepita parmesan.

6
Serve

Add cheese sauce, minced jalapeños, and minced red peppers to the large pot with the pasta, and stir. Transfer pasta to a baking dish, sprinkle with pepita parmesan, and bake until hot and bubbling, 7 to 10 minutes. Divide the Southwest cheesy mac with jalapeño and pepita parmesan between large plates. Dig in!
