Units Scale
  • 4 1/4 cups Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 cups Gluten free Elbow Noodles
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 2 cups Mild Cheddar Cheese (Shredded)
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Finely shredded Cheese
  • 2 cups Fine Gluten Free Bread Crumbs


  1. Place the 4 1/2 cups of water in medium sized pot. Add the salt and bring the water to a boil. Once it's boiling add the gluten free pasta and cook until al dente (slightly under done). Drain the pasta and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat place 1/4 cup of the milk and the 4 oz of cream cheese. Using a whisk, break up the cream cheese until it becomes smooth and incorporates into the milk. Then add the remaining milk, the mild cheddar cheese, mustard and salt and pepper. Whisk until the sauce is smooth.
  3. Pour the noodles into a rectangular baking dish and cover with the cheese sauce. Mix to fully combine and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the finely shredded cheese over the top, followed by the gluten free bread crumbs.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then serve.


If you prefer a very saucy mac & cheese you can either leave it un-baked and cook the noddles all the way or you can double the sauce ingredients and bake as normal.
