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!

    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
