Talk about decadent! And yet this meal is also ... plant-based? Yep. This mac n' cheese is next-level. There's a silky cauliflower cream sauce, and we use lumache pasta which really holds onto sauce. Buffalo chickpeas are exactly what they sound like, with a buttery buffalo sauce that's just the right amount of spicy.
