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.

Is the Kraft Deluxe cheese gluten free?

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 :)

Ugghhhh I have been craving mac and cheese so much lately... but I can't have dairy. Looks like you got some great suggestions though!

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.

    • To me it sounded like he thought frying corn chips would contaminate the oil .     I never eat there.  I know a few years ago, the one by me was pretty Celiac friendly.  Maybe you had to have grilled wings?  They would get a clean bowl to toss them for Celiacs.  I don't know because I wasn't interested.  Maybe it depends on the store?  I would imagine one in Portland or Seattle or Denver , might be more aware than one in Omaha?  But even that depends.....
    • I would not eat there either for many reasons listed already. But what is wrong with yeast? *quote from op, not kareng 
    • Hi,  I just wanted to add some insight to my question on the test results.  I am 58 experiencing stress fractors to the foot without any extra activity.  I have osteoporosis and the thought process of the doctors is that I have another cause besides age for the osteoporosis.  The foot is not healing after 11 weeks in a boot.  Ortho sent me to Endo.  Endo did blood test.  Hormones normal and received the below results on Celiac.  I have had osteoarthritis since 21, Was diagnosised at 29 as being allergic to wheat, symptom was I lost my voice after having my first child.  Had my second at 32 and magic I could eat wheat again and not lose my voice.  Last year I was tested autoimmune because of lung issues; MAC and bronchiaestasis.  IGA was high then but no further testing.  I do not have digestion issues except lactose intolerant.  I do have low values on vitamin D. I do not go back to Endo until 2 weeks from now.  My sister is fighting her own issues which is pointing to autoimmune but drs. have figured her out yet.  My mom as MS and her mom died of ALS, Dad's side had Lupus.  Any thoughts?
    • I am sorry to hear you are having these problems with airborne particle sensitivity. My initial symptoms were neurological (extreme fatigue and visual migraines) and dermatological.  I had "eczema" from the base of my skull to my bra-line that itched and burned terribly.   I do not have Celiac disease but I do have gluten intolerance.  I have remained strictly gluten free for 6.5 years now (except for occ'l "glutenizing" by someone trying hard to be nice and feed me something they believe is gluten-free).  The first year I was gluten free I continued to have this rash in a smaller area but it would flare in the hairline.  We found gluten free oats in a product we used and cutting out oats almost completely alleviated my skin reaction.  My doctor informed me that the protein in oats is similar to other grains containing gluten so I may be reacting to it even though it is not actually gluten.   I now use only gluten free hair products as I have long hair and I figure that even though it is external hair blows in my face and I push it away or I may touch my hair to push it out of the way when eating or socializing.  Everyone is different as far as items they tolerate but I have had good results with Griffin Remedy (available online at their website), Aura Cacia (although they do use Cetryl Alcohol which I used to try to avoid for other reasons), and Avalon Organics Cucumber gluten-free shampoo and conditioner.  You probably already use gluten-free facial care products and lip glosses as you sound knowledgeable about Celiac and gluten-free issues. I don't buy any of my gluten free products from a store where they are shelved with the regular baking products.  (I would be OK with washing an item if it were plastic packaged but many are in cardboard so I personally feel the risk of contamination goes up).  I am blessed to be married to a man who is open minded and glad to see me feeling better so there is nothing with gluten in our home (in food products).  My diet is similar to the person who stated, "Solid advice" above.  Finally, if I am going out with friends I take food along with me except for a very few establishments where I am sure that I am safe.  I also bring a bottle of water or iced tea, and even a napkin, as some people preparing food may be touching something with gluten and then handling glasses for beverages or setting tables without being fully aware (as was mentioned above pertaining to the gluten-free oats).  I also found with the gluten-free diet fad that I have to be vigilant in asking about preparation in unknown venues (i.e. We were on a ski vacation and I was excited to see gluten-free items on the menu BUT the preparation area was not segregated, nor was the cookware.  I was able to explain my needs and accommodations were made.  Hopefully, the owner were more educated regarding the needs of people with gluten sensitivities vs. dietary preference and made some changes in their practices.) I hope you find the piece to your puzzle that works for you!    
    • My daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 months ago after she had fallen off the growth chart. She is 7 years old. Anyone happen to know when we may start seeing celiac growth spurt? I'm worried because in the past 5 months she's grown 1/2 an inch and has only gained 1/2 lb. We are following up with her endocrinologist this week and I want to be prepared before we go in to see her. Thanks!
