Hi Lauren. We have not personally tried this with gluten free noodles yet , but commenters have said that the gluten free noodles do not hold up well and get very mushy. We have NOT tried that but have heard that gluten free pastas do not hold up well in this recipe. I made this for my family. Instead of having a whole can of evaporated milk I only had the 5 oz. For the cheese I had shredded Mexican cheese 4 kinds and then about a handful more.
I did use American sliced cheese 4 ounces of it. I omitted the cayenne pepper. My family loved it!!! I am now going to be making it this way again for them because the flavor was wonderful. I really loved it much better than some I have tried. Thanks for the recipe. I tried this today and was really disappointed. It had an odd taste which I attribute this to the evaporated milk. Any idea why it came out gritty? I followed your directions precisely and it is edible, but somewhat gritty.
Hi Rachel. It may have been the type of pasta you used. I have only ever used Barilla in the blue box. I have heard that people have had trouble with the gluten free or whole wheat varieties. The first time, I used pre-shredded cheeses. I used a crockpot that has a couple hot spots, which caused certain spots to burn faster. My fault!
The second time, I used pre-shredded cheeses and I used heavy whipping cream instead of evap milk. Again, turned out ok. Oh and it was very greasy. My fault again! Yesterday, Thanksgiving , I used block cheese that I shredded myself, which improved the texture and taste of the mac.
I used 3 tbsp. I stuck to the milk measurements and used evap milk. This Mac and cheese came out soooooooooo delicious. It was tender, it was creamy, it was not too cheese or greasy. The taste was phenomenal!! I am currently making this right now. I doubled the recipe.
Any suggestions. This is not an oven recipe, but you can try this one https: I have to bring mac and cheese to an after Thanksgiving meal. It is 2. Any ideas of how I can accomplish this with your recipe? I was planning on buying this Presto Nomad travel slow-cooker that looks like a little cooler that should keep things hotter through travel, but it will not be plugged in so it will not be on.
I was going to cook pasta and make a cheese sauce the day before, then combine and heat it up on the stove and then transfer it to the pre-warmed slow cooker. Do you have any suggestions?
How much do I undercook the pasta? I have never done this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving. Can you do a dry run this week before the holiday and try it out?
Please try and make it on Tuesday or Wednesday and do the timing as if you were traveling. Good luck and let me know how it goes! Happy Thanksgiving: It turned out so bad we could not eat it.
Just mush. I will go back to my own mac and cheese. Love the kick!
I have made this 2 years in a row for the cross country team pasta parties and the kids love it! Thanks for the great recipe!
