Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Rinsing the cooked gluten-free macaroni under cold water helps stop the cooking, separates the pieces of pasta and prevents your gluten-free baked macaroni and cheese from becoming gummy.
  • tip 2
    Be sure to beat the cream cheese into the milk until completely smooth to avoid lumps in your finished gluten-free mac and cheese casserole.
  • tip 3
    This Gluten-Free Baked Mac and Cheese recipe was developed using gluten-free macaroni made from blends of corn and rice flours and corn, rice and quinoa flours. It was not tested with lentil-, exclusively quinoa- or exclusively brown rice-based types of gluten-free macaroni.
