This Mac N cheese is FABULOUS. It is not your classic mac and cheese exactly, but you really should try it. I found the original recipe on allrecipes.com and altered it a bit. I first made it gluten free using Tinkyada Pasta Joy brown rice macaroni noodles and homemade GF breadcrumbs by crumbling up some of my GF biscuits and letting them dry out a bit. My whole family ate it and didn’t know it was GF. That’s always a great accomplishment in my opinion.
Of course, just use regular pasta and breadcrumbs if you don’t need GF for your family.
Also, if you don’t like a crunchy breadcrumb topping on yours, just add 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the top instead. You won’t be disappointed.
