I used to make a version of vegan mac n cheese all the time.. it was the easiest thing ever!  one way is:
in a saucepan mix 1/4 c nutritional yeast 1/4c flour and 1c h2o ior soymilk.. stir until it bubbles and gets thick
mix in salt/pepper/hotsauce/mustard powder/ketchup/garlic powder to taste
it's good on noodles, or if you mix it with salsa its like cheezy salsa dip... ooh yeaaahh.
another version would be to put some noodles in a pot and use a fake chicken broth or veggie broth to just cover it, and simmer it down until the noodles are cooked, but so theres not excess broth in he pan.  add a few slices of soy cheese, some seasonings, and a dash of nutritional yeast for flavor.  really creamy and tasty. 

and out of sheer curiousity...
how do you make regular mac n cheese from scratch?  like.. the baked kind?

The way I make baked macaroni and cheese is first boil the noodles until they're cooked but not too soft.  I add some chopped onion to the water before boiling it.  I don't know if it makes much of a difference, but thats the way my mom has always done it, so I do it too.  When the macaroni is done, drain and put a layer in the bottom of a dish.  Add salt & pepper.  Then dot with butter and top with slices of velveeta cheese.  I'm not sure regular cheese would work with this method, because it wouldn't melt as well.  Then repeat layers ending with cheese.  Pour milk over the top until you see it peeking up through the macaroni.  Bake at 325 for about an hour.  The cheese on top will turn brown, but take it out before the inside gets too dry.  After it sets for a short time, the excess liquid will be absorbed.

My mom always made two dishes of mac and cheese when she made it.
The first one was regular old mac and cheese-- heat milk and cheese mixed with pasta and bake.  (essentially)
The other, she'd cook the pasta, mix it with tomota juice and shredded sharp cheddar cheese and back.  Mmmm.
You guys are the only people I've read who've mentioned anything with tomatos.. everyone I know thinks it's gross.
And the impatient college kids version - plain cooked ramen noodles, drained, with a small can of tomato juice and some cheese.  Alittle bit different taste, but still yummy.

Vegan mac and cheese is pretty good, and if you eat this rather than the other stuff there is no guilt about the animals who had to suffer to make the cheese and butter and milk

How exactly do cows suffer from providing cheese, butter and milk?

a bunch of people in here have mentioned putting tomatoes in mac 'n cheese, but i dont think anyone's mentioned ketchup. ketchup and mac 'n cheese just belong together. esp if the mac 'n cheese is from a box, or if it's easy mac.
if i come home and am too tired/lazy to cook, i'll make easy mac with a hotdog and ketchup. it's even better with cheese dogs. i discovered that you dont even need to cook the hotdog/cheesedog seperately. just cut it up and throw it in the bowl before you put the easy mac in the microwave, the cook, add powdered cheese packet, stir, and top with ketchup. you can choose whether or not to stir the ketchup in; i, personally, dont.

If you love sunflower seeds on your mac and cheese you should sprinkle them on a grilled cheese....ooh, so delicious. I'm betting you'd like it, kelleys

Since EmilyFlew hasn't replied yet, I will say that the best mac 'n' cheese I've ever had was at her parents' house.  Her mom added tomato sauce, and then it was served with cottage cheese (I think, but maybe that was a different dish).  Either way, sooooooooooo so good.

Haha, I just saw this thread and was like I should tell them about my mom's mac and cheese and Messily beat me to it! Homemade mac and cheese is the best, not much harder than the box stuff and so much tastier. I use:

2 Tablespoons butter, melt in a large-ish pan over medium-low heat until it stops bubbling
2 Tablespoons flour, mix in well and let cook until it's golden
1 to 1 1/2 cup milk, mix in a bit at a time then cook, stirring until it's thickened (about 5 minutes)
4 to 6 oz grated sharp chedder cheese, mix in until it's all melted
1/3 cup spagetti sauce

Put over cooked noodles (this makes enough sauce for about 2/3 of a pound of noodles). My mom bakes it for about 45 minutes at this point, but I don't. Depends on if you want it crusty or creamy. Also depends on how hungry you are for mac and cheese!

Serve with cottage cheese (sounds weird but everyone who'd tried it has been converted) and cooked frozen peas. My favorite comfort meal!

Like, you add the cottage cheese at the end on top, or you bake it on or what?

You put the cottage cheese on it at the end...I usually serve it to the side and take a little bit with each bite of macaroni. Best if it's full-fat cottage cheese, the good stuff.
