Gluten Free Velveeta Macaroni & Cheese

Gluten Free Velveeta Macaroni & Cheese - Mac & Cheese Chick

Sometimes you want it quick and dirty.

Your macaroni and cheese, I mean.

But if you have Celiac disease, or are on a gluten-free regimen for another reason, this can be especially difficult. Enter Gluten-Free Velveeta Mac & Cheese. It captures the essence of a quick and dirty mac and cheese (no oven time, here, no sir!) but stays within the parameters of a gluten-free life.

I used Tinkyada Brown Rice Spirals for this recipe because I like the way the pasta holds its shape and the flavor is great, too. To keep the Velveeta from being overly bland, I added a dash of Crystal Hot Sauce and it livened up the mac & cheese perfectly.

To begin, cook your pasta according to the package directions. Drain, then set aside.

While the pasta is cooking, cut the Velveeta, fat-free cream cheese and butter into chunks.

Using the same large pot in which you cooked the pasta, add the Velveeta, cream cheese, butter, milk and hot sauce.

Cook over low heat, stirring regularly, until the cheeses are melted and the mixture is smooth.

That’s it! Now it is time to enjoy your gluten-free Velveeta mac and cheese!

My thoughts? Three hearty elbows up (well, perhaps 3 and a half…) – the Velveeta made the whole thing velvety and smooth, and the hot sauce gave it just enough kick to take it from bland to interesting. The pasta texture was chewy and wonderful; it held up just fine with all my stirring, woo hoo!

    Loved this! Simple, easy and very tasty. Half this recipe would probably serve four as a side…but it is so yummy I could see left overs being baked in little muffin cups or something. Thanks for a perfect combo!
