Karina's Gluten-Free Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe

Recipe posted November 28, 2005.

My husband loves a classic baked macaroni and cheese for his favorite comfort food so tonight we baked a lovely, gluten-free "mac 'n cheese". This recipe works with any gluten-free pasta shape. Penne. Macaroni. And rotini (spirals) are fun.

Tip:

The trick with baking gluten-free pasta is to not over-boil it first- keep it al dente. It continues to cook in the sauce.

Ingredients:

12 oz. gluten-free penne, spirals or macaroni pasta
3 tablespoons light olive oil
3 tablespoons sweet rice flour
2 1/2 cups milk, or unsweetened non-dairy milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, or non-dairy gluten-free cheese
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon gluten-free honey mustard or Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup Best Gluten-Free "Bread" Crumbs - for topping
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Halved cherry tomatoes, optional

Instructions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and pre-cook the gluten-free penne just until it is al dente - tender, but still quite firm to the bite. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse it quickly under cold water. Set aside.

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and stir in the rice flour (I like to use a whisk to do this). Cook and stir the flour for about 10 seconds, then slowly add in the milk or non-dairy milk, whisking to blend into a flour paste.

Bring the mixture to a bubble (it will thicken as it heats) then reduce the heat to low. Add the shredded cheese, sea salt, mustard, nutmeg, and stir. Continue stirring the sauce until the cheese melts, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

In a 6-cup baking dish, combine the cooked penne with the hot cheese sauce. Sprinkle the top of the casserole with gluten-free bread crumbs and smoked paprika. Add halved cherry tomatoes and dried basil, if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes, until heated through and bubbling.

Serves 4.
