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


  1. Yep, this macaroni and cheese blows!
    Excuse my french. Better off making your own and freezing it.
    Have you ever had this Quinoa Pasta?
    It's very, very good, make a nice gluten free bechamel (soft of) with corn starch and the cheese you use:)

  2. I'll have to try that - every other brand I use just gets mushy.
