  • 125 g dried elbow macaroni
  • 2 tbsp vegan cream cheese
  • 5 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 3 tbsp vegan cheddar grated
  • pinch paprika more if you like
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • 2 spring onions finely sliced


  • Cook the pasta in a large pot with plenty of water until al dente (firm but cooked). Check the packet instructions as a guide.
  • Drain the pasta in a colander then cool under running cold water until completely cold.
  • In a large bowl, mash the cream cheese to soften it, then add the mayo and grated cheese.
  • Add a generous pinch of paprika and season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Pour the pasta into a large bowl and mix in the cheese sauce. Taste it to check the seasoning.
  • Mix in the spring onions, then serve.
  • Enjoy!


  • Cheese pasta salad can be kept in the fridge for 3 days. Store in an airtight container. Give it a stir to coat the pasta evenly with the sauce before serving as the dressing can settle at the bottom of the tub.
  • For the best flavour, take the pasta salad out of the fridge for 5-10 minutes to take the chill of it.
