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

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.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
