The perfect veggie mac and cheese for meatless Monday!
Boil penne noodles according to box instructions
Melt butter in a large sauce pan
Whisk in flour
Slowly stir in heavy cream until smooth. Allow to simmer over low heat to thicken.
When noodles have approximately 2-3 minutes left, add chopped veggies into boiling water and allow to cook. At this point you should also preheat your oven to 350.
Drain veggies and pasta and set to the side.
Return to sauce and mix in half of the cheese, salt, pepper, and cayenne. I added a small amount of Parm to my sauce but this is optional.
Add half of the noodles and veggies to a large glass pan. Mix in half of the cheese sauce. Repeat with the remaining halves.
Top with the rest of the cheese and breadcrumbs.
Bake at 350, uncovered, for 25 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
