I LOVE macaroni & cheese!  I have made countless versions that I have fallen in love with, but this – THIS BABY – is my hands-down favorite!  Pasta au Gratin: Fancified Mac ‘n Cheese (oo you fancy, huh?!). Enjoy!  IMG_7173s

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 lb of pasta of choice, cooked per instructions (I used organic brown rice pasta)
  • Cream sauce:
    • 2 Cups non-dairy milk
    • 2 Tablespoons potato starch (may replace with corn or arrow root)
    • 2 Tablespoons non-dairy butter
    • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
    • 1 Cup veganized cheddar cheese, grated
    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup veganized cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 Cup gluten-free breadcrumbs

Directions:

  1. While your pasta is cooking, let’s prepare the cheese sauce!  In a medium sauce pan, bring  your non-dairy milk, potato starch, and non-dairy butter to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low and add in your grated veganized cheddar cheese, dijon mustard, nutmeg, salt & pepper to taste.  Whisk until the cheese is melted.  Once your pasta is cooked & drained, place it back in your pot and pour in your cheese sauce; stir to combine.IMG_6470sIMG_7101s IMG_7132s
  2. Add your pasta in cheese sauce to a 9 x 9 greased baking dish (you may also use small ramekin dishes).  Top your dish with the remaining grated cheese & sprinkle your gluten-free breadcrumbs. Place your baking dish back in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.  IMG_7166s IMG_7167s IMG_7168s
