Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Spray a baking sheet with Clearly by Best Choice Cooking Spray and place the cubed sweet potato, quartered onions, and garlic, with the peel on, on the baking tray.
Drizzle the ingredients on the tray with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss all the ingredients to evenly coat vegetables.
Place the baking tray in the oven and roast the vegetables for 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove the tray from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.
Peel and place the roasted garlic in a heavy-duty blender or food processor, along with the roasted veggies, cashews, nutritional yeast, thyme, non-dairy milk, and vegetable broth.
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package directions.
Drain all the water and return the pasta to the pot.
Pour the vegetable sauce over the pasta and mix well.
Transfer the mac and cheese to a serving dish and top with fresh basil or parsley, if desired.
