Vincente's Macaroni and Cheese
Everyone loves mac n cheese! This is my basic recipe, too...I add 1/2 Cup grated romano or parm for that lil something extra Make it gluten free! Use rice pasta (white rice [look in Asian market] are smoother, corn, quinoa ect. become grainy) Use oatmeal flour...let it thicken for 7-10mins Up the milk 1-1/2 Cup...add more as needed Don’t forget to add the parm and or romano cheeses!
