Saucepan GF Mac & Cheese

I improvised this recipe from a Better Homes and Garden cookbook I have. It's a quick and pretty tasty homemade GF Mac & Cheese recipe AND it doesn't require baking in the oven.

  • 8 oz. brown rice elbow macaroni
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 2 TBS all-purpose GF flour
  • 2 cracks of fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and return to pot.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add onion. Cook onion until tender and translucent. Stir in flour, pepper, and milk. Cook over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Add cheese, stirring until melted.

Pour cheese sauce over macaroni; stir to coat macaroni with sauce. Cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
