Recipe 48: Gluten-Free One Pot, No Drain Mac ‘N’ CheesePosted: December 12, 2014
I think you all know me well enough by now to know that I like when recipes are EASY. Any exotic ingredients or unusual steps? Kind of a hassle. I have a whole set of recipes tagged “easy mac” because if it just involves stovetop cooking, it deserves some special recognition.
I’ve seen recipes before claiming to be one pot, no-drain recipes, ones where you make the sauce while cooking the pasta, but they were all “normal pastas,” i.e. not gluten-free. This sounded like a great idea, but I had no idea if this concept would work with GF pastas. Then I found this website: All gluten-free. I think we all know I had to try this just about right away.
Gluten-Free One Pot, No Drain Mac ‘N’ Cheese (from Flippin’ Delicious)
- 3 c. gluten-free elbow pasta (or penne or other short pasta) – I used corn elbows
- 2 1/4 c. milk – I used skim, though the original recipe discourages this
- 2 1/4 c. water
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2-2 c. grated cheddar cheese
- Pepper, to taste
