Ingredients

COOK:

PURÉE:

MELT:

Silken tofu, or Japanese-style tofu, isn’t pressed so it is softer, whiter, and more delicate in flavor than the Chinese-style pressed tofus. It’s typically pasteurized and then sold in aseptic packaging so it’s shelf stable. Because of its softer texture, it works well in creamy savory and sweet dishes.

Instructions

Cook cavatappi in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.

Purée tofu, onion, and garlic in a mini food processor or blender.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in tofu mixture, milk, mustard, and Tabasco. Once mixture is hot, add Cheddar and stir until it melts. Stir pasta into cheese sauce to coat, then season mac ‘n cheese with salt and pepper.

Processing the tofu, onion, and garlic until they’re smooth will yield the creamiest mac ‘n cheese.
