Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe Ingredients

2 cans (15-ounce) diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons gluten free flour mixture
2 cups milk
1-1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 ounces gluten free macaroni
2 cups cooked ham cut into cubes

Recipe Directions

In medium saucepan, melt butter or margarine on low heat. Stir in flour until it forms a paste. Bring to medium-high heat. Add Cheddar cheese. Stir constantly until melted.

Cook 8 ounces of gluten free macaroni until just done. Do not overcook as the noodles will receive further cooking in the oven.

Place cooked macaroni into greased 2-quart casserole dish. Add ham. Pour over cheese sauce. Stir all together gently.

Bake in 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.

Recipe Notes

If you would like to freeze your Macaroni and Cheese for later cooking, mix cheese sauce and pasta together in a freezer safe container. Freeze. When ready to cook, thaw Macaroni and Cheese thoroughly. Then bake as directed.

Did You Know?

  • Casseroles became popular in America during World War I when certain food items were scarce. Leftovers were chopped up and mixed with whatever else was available, and then put in a glass or metal pan and baked. The virtues of these easy to prepare meals are many.
  • If desired, or cutting back on meat, you can omit the ham in this recipe.
