Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Mac n Cheese (The Lori Mac)

It helps to have friends that are genius, like my vegan friend Lori! Lori is great for a multitude of reasons, including rodent rescue and release. She even took in, and raised, a baby mouse we found in our house, and was able to release it into the wild (and before you say, ewwwww, let me tell you, a baby mouse no bigger than you thumb nail is literally the cutest thing.) She is GREAT, and has the biggest heart for all animals. Lori also apparently has some mad culinary skills, because not too long ago I saw her post on Facebook that she was going to make spinach and artichoke mac n cheese!! WHAT!?!? Why had my brain not gone there yet? So we quickly whipped up a batch of our vegan  spinach and artichoke dip  and mixed into some noodles with a little extra cheese and, WOW! Lori was not wrong with this one!!! So thank you Lori for being all around awesome and genius, and thanks for always saving all the little critters nobody else wants to save! We are your biggest fans and so are our stomachs!
