Stove Top Cheater's Mac 'n' Cheese

Yes, it’s cheating just a little to make vegan macaroni and cheese starting with store-bought “cheese,” but who cares? The secret to getting this recipe super-creamy and cheesy is using cream cheese as well as vegan Cheddar. It’s not particularly healthy, but at least it’s still cholesterol-free!
