This recipe has become a favorite in our household. One of the foods I missed most after I began "clean eating" was Panera Mac 'n Cheese. Pair that with the fact that I also went gluten-free, and it seemed impossible that I'd ever taste anything similar again. Turns out I was wrong- yay! My roommate from college and I used to make a copycat recipe of Panera Mac 'n Cheese in college, but it just wasn't the same. I kept experimenting with it until I came up with the recipe below- here's what you'll need:
-2 cups of organic shell macaroni (for gluten-free, use tinkyada brown rice pasta shells*)
-2 cups raw, organic, 100% grass-fed whole milk
-4 to 6 oz organic sharp cheddar cheese (depending on how cheesy you like it)
-1 tablespoon raw, organic, 100% grass-fed butter
-1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
-1/8 teaspoon organic dijon mustard
*if using gluten-free pasta, add 1 cup of water
Serves 2 as a meal, or 4 as a side.
This recipe is gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and egg-free.
