Gluten Free Mac and Cheese (Bacon or Otherwise):
I found this recipe online, though it was for 8 oz. and not 12 like the pasta I was used to using. While it does offer the basic formula, I figured I would adapt it and add some of my own recommendations to accompany my video!
12 oz. Gluten free pasta of choice ( I use Barilla)
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp gluten free flour
2 cups of milk (Leave this out for a bit at room temperature.)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Meat (optional) – bacon is my favorite.
Garlic powder to taste
To start, boil your water, preparing the noodles as directed by the box.
Melt you butter over medium heat in a large saucepan, when melted add the flour and stir. After a couple minutes it should start to smell good, this is when you add your milk slowly, but steadily and continue mixing. The resulting sauce should thicken in 5-7 minutes, once thick, add your cheese, followed by your meats, or other seasonings/ingredients. Add the sauce to your pasta and enjoy a bowl of Mac and Cheese!
Not a fan of draining your pasta? Try putting the pasta from the water to the sauce, the starch on the pasta is supposed to help it taste more professional. I haven’t noticed a difference but if nothing else it will save you a colander and can may change the taste for you!
