Super Creamy Vegan Beer and Mozzarella Mac and Cheese

Super Creamy Vegan Beer and Mozzarella Mac and Cheese
I have made this recipe twice now and it keeps getting better. The amounts are estimates because I am still working on it and when I am developing my own recipes I don't usually measure. I will next time I make it. This is a recipe that doesn't need exactness so I am going to post it now anyway.

Ingredients

  • pasta (enough for 4 people)
  • 4 Tb oil
  • 5 Tb flour
  • 3/4 cup strong beer 
  • Water
  • 1/2 package mozzarella Daiya
  • Pinch red pepper flakes 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1Tb nutritional yeast 
Directions 
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile heat oil in separate pot.
  2. Gradually stir in flour. Gradually stir in beer. 
  3. Add a bit of water and stir. Continue to add water and stir until you have a creamy white sauce.
  4. Stir in cheese, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and nutritional yeast.
  5. Mix finished pasta into the sauce and serve with a sprinkle of paprika. 
  6. Eat some awesome mac n' cheese.
*****UPDATE*****
A sprinkle of paprika adds a lot of flavour to the dish. You can substitute cheddar Daiya for the mozzarella for a beer and cheddar version.
