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!

    • Sorry to hear about your no meat, Ennis. It sucks his celiac disease messes with people in different ways. Matt I was living on sweet potatoes but now they bloat me, which is odd. Avocado's would be to much fat, I think. I'm three weeks in today, and the past few days my C has improved. So that's some good news. I do know I need to stop worrying about the weight loss. So easy to Google and worry. If I could get back to lifting weights and reclaim my shoulders I'd be more calm and less stressed. For now I'll just have to get used to being lean. Anyone up for a symptom swap. My off on fatigue has shown up. I will swap for headaches brain fog. R Be well all
    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
