Product Review: Trader Joe's Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar - Mac & Cheese Chick

I’ve been reviewing Trader Joe’s various mac and cheese offerings lately. The first two were boxed mac and cheese, like this one, but this one’s a little different – it is gluten free. Instead of wheat in the pasta, it is rice.

Here’s what the box says: Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar. I like that they call out its gluten-free-ness and also let you know exactly what the pasta is made of. And I dig the pasta smile on the box.

Ingredients needed: 1 box of Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar, 1/4 cup fat-free milk.

I boiled 3 quarts of water and added the pasta. Once they were cooked (about 11 minutes), they were drained and popped back into the pot. I added the milk and cheese packet and stirred. In addition, I followed their suggestion to add 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter “for richer flavor”. I think the butter punched up the flavor of the mac and cheese to a new, better level.

My verdict? 3 1/2 elbows up! Delicious for a boxed mac and cheese.

    經過多番周旋,總算成功了過程如下:首先apple只退還我$110,我當然不滿.Apple的解釋是我的macbook是CTO,即不是standard package (e.g.訂機時加過RAM, HDD etc., 而我只是加左條DVI線…)最後apple願意收回我的舊機並全數退款現在我再在apple訂過一部新的,student dncsouit多了一百元,還多送4GB ipod nano…雖然要重裝電腦,但還算有賺
