This is pretty inexpensive compaired to gluten-free Mac and cheese and its homemade/hot!!!! ..
I made this because before i was diagnosed all i ate was mac and cheese, cuz its easy to make, and this is not much harder, a little messier but not much.. I still eat this virtually every day and i hope you like it..

Ingredients (Bulk recipe) Old can be stored and warmed up in the microwave or you can cut the recipe down)

4 Cups of Minute Rice
4 Cups of Water
2 Jars of RAGU brand Cheesy Cheddar sauce (According to RAGU, the MFS. is from corn, and it is gluten-free.)
1 dash of salt
2 tbsb of margarine
(optional to add ham or broccoli, or anything you want!)

Boil water, Add the Rice and cover, let sit about 10 minutes or until the water is gone out of the bottom (More water if you want it watery, let sit longer if you want it dry).. Add One and 1 half (or 2 if you like it REALLY cheesy) jars of the Ragu cheesy sauce, 2 tbsb of margarine, dash of salt and stir well.. You can also stir in anything you want from ham to broccoli if you like that....

Hope you can make sense of this, i put my own directions for the minute rice because the times are a bit longer for this much rice (its more than listed on the box) but i make this for a few days and warm it up cuz i hate cooking... Hope someone can enjoy it:)

Well, it sounds pretty awful, but it reminded me of a time a friend of mine had some really good pizza that she froze. When she thawed it, the crust was really nasty, so she scraped off the toppings and mixed them with rice. It tasted fabulous. I think that much flavor kinda overwhelms the rice and you get the taste of just the good stuff.

I've never tried the Ragu sauce, but this sounds similar to the pizza rice thing - rice is just a great method for holding all that cheese!!!

FYi,

Amy's makes a terrific gluten free mac n cheese

Also, the kraft mac n cheese "powder mix" is gluten free. You can actaully buy it separately at Wal Mart.

Just cook Tinkyada pasta, add the butter, milk and Kraft powder mix and voila!

I do this too - but we buy the Kraft Dinner boxes and dump out the bad noodles but keep the sauce packet. I don't think they sell the sauce mix separtely in Canada...

Does anyone know where to get it online? Until then, I watch for sales and throw out a lot of boxes and noodles!

I made a really easy mac n cheese last week. I just cooked Tinkyada spirals as directed. While it was draining i cubed some velveeta, added a tablespoon (or so) of margarine, and when it was just about melted added a little milk. Then I dumped the pasta back in - it was AWESOME! It was so creamy - better than any gluten-filled mac n cheese that I ever had!

Ok, I have never heard of this Tinkyada. Where can I pick this up at I live in california, Trader Joes, whole foods. I really never liked pasta much any way, never ate it as a kid , made my mom make mashed potatoes or rice for me with sauces, I only really started eating it a few years ago, thought it would help me gain weight(ha ha) until i found out im a celiac, anyway thought i might try it. thanks. oh ya is it noodles or like macroni or what ? :rolleyes:

Thanks Justin
Actually its very similar to my broccoli and cheese casserole which my daughter and I love. The only difference is I use velveeta and of course add broccoli. I have yet to try the ragu sauce, I'm going to have to give it a go.

I didnt know that you could buy the kraft packets separately, I'll have to check my local walmart. My dh misses the kraft taste.

Rebecca- www.tinkyada.com has a listing of the stores. Whole foods in your area should carry it. It comes in all shapes and sizes. It makes a nice lasagna too. I love it because its corn free too.

Annies makes a boxed gluten free kind that is pretty good. Does anyone have a good recipe for real mac and cheese using cheddar?

It's pasta and our Whole Foods has it. It cooks really well-doesn't get mushy if you over cook by 20 seconds! It also bakes well in recipes-I uncook mine a bit if I am going to be baking it, but then I did that with 'regular' pasta pre-gluten-free, too!

I will need to check our Walmart for the Kraft M&C sauce-I've been buying the on sale blue box and pitching out the macaroni, also! What a great idea for them to do that! Thanks for the tip!
