  2. Dude, just boil some noodles in a non-stick frying pan (Yup, a frying pan. The water boils faster and it saves you a dish) Dump cooked noodles to strainer and leave them. Take the hot frying pan and put on low heat and add in a couple tabs of butter. Let butter melt. Add a heaping spoonful of flour and stir until mixed. Then add 1 cup or so of original unsweetened almond milk (it gives a nice nutty flavor and milk is just gross). Stir until the almond milk mixes with the flour/butter. The mixture will become thick (add more almond milk if too thick). At the thickness you like sprinkle in garlic powder, chili powder and paprika to taste then mix in 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar and 1/2 cup of Gouda cheese (or whatever cheese you have). Stir in noodles. Done. Stove top Mac and Cheese. Takes 15 mins.
