Gluten Free Mac and Cheese – Blog Post #24

I hadn’t eaten Mac and cheese in almost 9 months. I used to love it. Then I went gluten free. It took me awhile to be able to find a gluten free pasta that I liked.

Finally I found the Aldi’s G Free elbow macaroni.  It’s made of quinoa, brown rice, white rice, and corn flour. I decided to try it out.  The pasta was great!

I used my basic mac and cheese recipe.  It involves making a roux of flour and butter to thicken the sauce.

The Wee one told me that it was too cheesy! LOL!

This quick and easy macaroni and cheese is going on my Thanksgiving table.  Yum!
