mac and cheese with veggies

i made this today, and it's the best mac and cheese i've ever had. and i've never liked mac and cheese in my life!

4 cups pasta (i used elbow macaroni)
a cups or so of chopped broccoli
1 bell pepper, sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
a cup or so of corn
1/2 onion, diced
a few tablespoons butter (or oil)
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
soy milk (a cup or two probably)
salt and pepper
chili powder
basil and oregano

cook the pasta and cut up the vegetables. mix them in with the pasta and put in a casserole dish.

melt the butter in a little pot. add the diced onion and sautee until it's translucent. add the flour and cook for a minute or two. add the nutritional yeast, and add a little bit of soymilk to make it a nice pastey type thing. cook for a minute, and then add soy milk.

add the spices (the turmeric makes it yellow!) and let it cook until it's thick and yummy looking.

pour the sauce on top of the pasta and vegetables, top with some basil and oregano and put in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
