I Want Macaroni And Cheese! in Gluten-Free Recipes & Cooking Tips Posted February 23, 2012 · Report to Admin Did you know that KRAFT mac and cheese packet is gluten free? Here's what works best for us. We take out the packet, throw out the gluten pasta. I make penne from Schaar (or brown rice spirals). While they drain I whisk together the milk, cheese packet and butter. This way it is all smooth and doesn't stick to the gluten-free pasta. Then toss back in the pasta. Guess what? My gluten-free son now likes this better than gluten pasta Mac and Cheese. Give it a whirl. PS: if you are super sensitive their could be gluten flakes on the outside of the packet. I dump out the pasta and then I take a moist paper towel and wipe down the outside of the packet. My daughter is pretty sensitive and hasn't been glutened yet.
