Sorry not sorry, but my mac n cheese is the best (swipe for recipe)! Having some leftovers right now and the sauce is just as creamy as when I first made it. I get asked often how to store leftovers/reheat my sauce; to get my mac this creamy days after making it I always store my sauce separate from my pasta, with any type of sauce it will separate if you refrigerate it already combined w/ your pasta. So just add sauce to the portion of pasta you’re going to eat and save the rest separately. When you warm the leftover sauce, simply add some to a pan on low heat and thin it out with a splash of nondairy milk and whisk until you get your desired consistency! That’s all I did, threw some breadcrumbs on top also, so delicious! ?
