Comfort Food Mac and Cheese

Autumn is near. It's time for comfort food! It's creamy, starchy, rich, delicious! And can be good for you too. It's part of the American tradition and good eating. Starchy macaroni and cheddar cheese are two foods that are not traditionally on the "good for you" list of foods. But alternatives are available. Wheat-free, gluten-free, and dairy free alternatives work together to create just that: creamy, starchy, rich, delicious AND healthy comfort food! The formula is simple:

1 package of Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta

1 recipe melty cheese

Gluten- free bread, cracker, or biscuit crumbs

Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and sprinkle with olive oil. Place back into kettle. Pour 1 recipe (or double for a creamier dish) melty cheese and mix well. Place into small baking dishes. Sprinkle with crumbled gluten-free crumbs. Bake at 350 degree oven for 40 - 45 minutes until well-baked and a crunchy crust forms.Delicious served with some fresh salsa. Yummy!


  1. Oh my gosh, La Tea Dah....a cheese sauce without cheese! Wowsers. Interesting. Susan

  2. The melty cheese looks like the real thing and the casseroles above look very tasty.

  3. We love noodles like this. My son is in charge of making lunch. I think this is what he said he was going to make for us. It is one of his favorites, even requested on his birthday several years.
