Macaroni and Cheese ~ Gluten Free:
Bring a large Pot of water to a boil...Salt the water
add : 16 oz. Gluten Free Pasta (***SEE FOOTNOTE***)
Stir and cook until Al Dente (do not over cook)
Rise under cold water and drain
To make the Cheese Sauce:
Make a Roux
Melt 4 Tbl. Butter
add 4 Tbl. Gluten Free Flour, I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
Use a whisk to combine and cook for a couple of minutes.. until smooth
Add to taste:
Salt and Pepper
1 tsp. Dried Mustard
A couple of Dashes of Cayenne Pepper
3 ¼ Cups of Milk
Cook on a medium heat occasionally whisking
Cook until the Milk thickens. Turn off the heat
2 Cups Shredded Orange Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack Cheese Blend (Or any cheese of your choice)
½ Cup Parmesan Cheese
Blend in with the wire whisk until Cheese has melted
Check the seasonings and adjust if needed.
Spray a Large Casserole Dish with Cooking Spray
Put half of the Pasta in the Pan.. mix in half the Cheese sauce
Add remaining Pasta and Cheese. I use a Rubber Spatula and gently mixed them together.
Gluten Free Pasta can be fragile.
Sprinkle the top with more Monterey Jack and Cheddar Cheese
Place the Casserole Pan on a cookie sheet or pizza pan in case it spills over.
Bake in a 375* Oven for 40-45 minutes or until Golden Brown
Let it cool a little bit to help set the cheese.
I did a lot of reading about which is the best Gluten Free Pasta to use for Macaroni and Cheese. There were many different opinions. Use which ever Gluten Free Pasta that you like.
I used Gluten Free Corn Pasta. I read that the Elbow Corn Pasta was to small so I used a Rigatoni - Use any tubular shaped Corn Pasta.
Many people found White Rice Pasta to get to Mushy.
Others found the Brown Rice Pasta was great and Others enjoyed Quinoa.
If you prefer to top your mixed Macaroni and Cheese with a Gluten Free Breadcrumbs.
Mix some Breadcrumbs with Melted Butter and sprinkle over the Macaroni and Cheese before your bake it. You can also top it with sliced Tomatoes before you bake it.
