Gluten Free Baked Macaroni and Cheese Italian-Style (Baked Ziti)

Italian-Style Gluten Free Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This gluten free baked macaroni and cheese is basically a ziti recipe, but I can’t find any gluten free ziti pasta (straight tubular noodles, usually with grooved lines). So, I just renamed it, especially for those who are not familiar with Italian food. This is my go to recipe for unexpected guests. Sometimes I serve it the first day that my holiday guests arrive, as well. I’m usually too busy and exhausted to cook after cleaning the house and making sure everything is perfect. For guests, I use my Authentic Spaghetti Sauce Recipe which contains beef stew meat and Italian sausage. I always keeps some in the freezer. The dish in the photo below contains marinara sauce (tomato-based sauce without meat). I either make plain macaroni and cheese for myself, in a separate dish or add some pureed red bell pepper sauce since I am allergic to tomatoes. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my guests have. Continue reading “Gluten Free Baked Macaroni and Cheese Italian-Style (Baked Ziti)”
