Pastariso is hands down the best gluten free mac and cheese I've had (the one with the dolphin on the front), I get these delivered regularly to me from Amazon and even my husband says it tastes just like kraft!

Just last week I was craving Mac & Cheese. I made my own, very simple and quick. I added pancetta and sauteed onions.

I used Tinkyada brown rice elbows 8 ozs.

Made a roux with

3T butter

1/4 C King Arthur Flour All Purpose

add 2 Cups warm milk

Stir till tickened

Add a combination of cheese's total of 4 cups

Gruyere

Swiss

Mexican mix

Cheddar

I added sauteed pancetta and onions, S & P to taste.

I put in baking dish, topped with sliced tomato (need the healthy, makes me feel less guilty) sprinkled with bread homemade bread crumbs and baked till bubbly.

It was so creamy and you could of eaten it out of the pot, I choose to bake it. WARNING I probably used tooooo much cheese you could use less.

Yumm! You have me salivating!

I make a recipe much like Patti's. I put more cheese on top and then breadcrumbs stirred with melted butter. You can add onion or whatever you feel like that day. One thing I have found is that gluten free macaroni (I have to use rice only) absorbs more of the sauce than gluten does so use less macaroni if you like it really creamy like I do :) or I suppose you could cook the macaroni iuntil it is more mushy :rolleyes: And then you have to have a supremely healthy green salad with it :D

We eat the Annies with the powder but I add a little shredded cheddar for extra protein.

Pastariso is available at the gluten-free Mall.

I tried this at a local gluten-free expo and bought four packages. Wish I'd bought 3 times that! :)

I made a simple "Hamburger Helper" type mac & cheese for the 1st time the other night using Tinkyada(big fan) brown rice elbows, milk,butter, and Velveeta, with some browned ground beef added. It was easily as good as any gluten mac & cheese. Best to under cook elbows if also baking.

If you want rich, cheesey and creamy, this is the recipe you are looking for. It is all from scratch but easy and delicious and has four cheeses in it. I dislike the flavour and texture of Tinkyada pasta so I use a vegetable pasta or homemade pasta instead.

I would just buy velveeta :) Unless you have some left over, however, I wouldn't want to touch the pouch. I'm that paranoid :unsure:

Everyone has different taste, I like Tinkyada. It's the best in my area. I dislike corn pasta's, just me.My son thinks the corn pasta is too mushy. I have a crockpot mac and cheese that I will post later. My children who do not have to eat gluten-free, like the Tinkyada with velveeta or american cheese and butter. I like to add cheddar, but they do not. I think taking the time to do a baked mac and cheese is worth it too. Experiment with what sounds good to you :)

I bet there's a way to make it dairy free. A short time ago I saw Daiya "cheese" in Giant Foods...it is non-dairy and is supposed to melt. And I would think a non-dairy milk could be substituted. I did eliminate cheese right after diagnosis and it was a whole lot harder giving it up than gluten so I hear you on the cravings.

Almost 30 days gluten free-with only 2 mistakes (which i paid for dearly!) Last night I made my kids mac & cheese. I wanted some soooooo bad!!!! I almost gave in, but I didn't!! I was so frustrated, i almost gave and and thought, "to hell with it! i will go through the 3 days of hell to just taste it!!" but i didn't...

any suggestions on the best gluten free mac & cheese? not to mention, my mac & cheese obsessed 10 year old is bound to be gluten free within a few weeks, so I'm gonna need a replacement. B)

Here's a recipe:

I USE TINKYADA RICE PASTA BECAUSE THEIR FACILITY IS DEDICATED TO RICE ONLY AND THERE'S NO CHANCE FOR CROSS-CONTAMINATION.

2C RICE PASTA (MACARONI, SHELLS, FUSSILI, WHO CARES?)

2.5QT CASSEROLE DISH

IN A BLENDER:

1C RAW CASHEWS

1LG RED BELL PEPPER (RAW OR ROASTED)

2tp KOSHER SALT (IODIZED SALT MAY FLARE UP OUR SKIN RASH)

1tp GARLIC POWDER

1sm ONION

1tp CELERY SEED

2TB RAW SESAME SEEDS

(MAKE SURE YOU GRIND THE CELERY + SESAME SEEDS WELL BEFORE ADDING THEM TO THE BLENDER)

6TB NUTRITIONAL YEAST

1C ROASTED GARLIC OLIVE OIL (YOU CAN USE REGULAR OLIVE OIL, BUT THIS IS BETTER)

1/3C LEMON JUICE (FRESH SQUEEZED AND STRAINED FOLKS!)

1C WATER

BOIL PASTA

WHEN THE PASTA'S ALMOST DONE ADD ALL YOUR OTHER INGREDIENTS TO THE BLENDER AND BLEND ON THE HIGHEST SPEED FOR ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES, OR UNTIL IT'S COMPLETELY MIXED AND SMOOTH MAKING SURE YOU SCRAPE DOWN THE SIDES AS YOU GO.

DRAIN PASTA

PUT THE PASTA AND THE MIX IN THE DISH AND BAKE AT 375 FOR 1 HOUR

LET IT COOL FOR 1HOUR, THE FLAVORS BECOME MORE PRONOUNCED AS IT COOLS

FOR THOSE OF US WHO CAN'T DO GLUTEN OR DAIRY.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

Amy's does also make a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free frozen mac & cheese that is pretty good (well, as good as something missing all that can be!). Not cheap, but it does the trick for times when you just want some mac & cheese and don't want to make it yourself.

Google Daiya Mac and Cheese! Yummy, fast, not a million ingredients. My son had Mac and Cheese for the first time in his life 2 weeks ago. DH said it was better than the blue and yellow box ;) I added a little mustard but left out the nutritional yeast and it rocked!

I use the recipe on the Carnation evaporated milk can for baked mac & cheese. Just use your favorite gluten-free pasta. The family loves it.

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
