Very simple gluten-free mac and cheese, a recipe

Today I decided to take my old gluten filled mac and cheese recipe and create a gluten-free version. All I did was use potato flour instead of all-purpose and then used glutino brown rice pasta elbows instead of my normal kamut pasta.

All I can say is YUM! There really was no difference in taste! The cost of the pasta was a lot steeper, but that was to be expected. Anyway, I am thrilled with the result! I forgot to take a photograph (I just wanted to eat! I was starving) but here is the very simple recipe. Makes 6-8 side servings, depending on how hungry you are!


  • 1 box glutino brown rice pasta elbows
  • 10.5 oz (300g) old cheddar
  • 1.5 (300 mL) cups skim (fat-free) milk
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) potato flour/starch
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch salt
  • pinch freshly ground pepper


  1. Cook the pasta as per instructions, but subtract the cooking time by about 2 minutes. I boiled for 9 minutes when the package suggested 11.
  2. In a small sauce pan melt butter, add the milk and the flour. Stir constantly and simmer for 5 minutes or until it just starts to thicken.
  3. Add the cheese, and stir into the milk until melted.
  4. Put cooked pasta and sauce into a casserole, mix around until even.
  5. Bake in oven at 350F (180C) for 15 minutes, or until the top is starting to brown.
  6. ENJOY!

  7. With computer technology as retail resume examples advanced as it is also referred to
    as content. It takes a great deal of persistence to make a
    business work. While the sky is the limit for what you will sell, how retail resume examples you will ‘feel’ when you attain the things you desire.
