Glutino Mac n Cheese
I do have an affinity for mac and cheese. There is something so soothing and comforting about a bowl of warm pasta coated in yummy cheese sauce. My mom always made her mac n cheese with Velveeta and it was amazing. I've tried hard to duplicate many gluten mac n cheese recipes but they just don't work gluten free. Someone needs to make a firmer pasta or something.
I typically really enjoy Glutino products. I find the majority of their products to be delicious so I had high hopes when I purchased this guy. The box has instructions for both the microwave and the oven - protip: always go for the oven when making gluten free stuff - just like toasting makes gluten free breads taste divine the slow cooking that happens in the oven provides for a better end result.
While my mac n cheese baked I was dreaming of a crispy, yummy cheesy cover and perfect al dente pasta. Those minutes felt like hours. I let the mac n cheese rest for a bit before I dug in.
This can't be right, so I'll just take another forkful here.....nope yuck. I checked the box to make sure they used real cheese and not soy cheese or something because the taste was kind of funky. Plus no matter what I did it was all runny and bad.
Verdict? Sucky & Gross
