I finally broke down and had myself some macaroni and cheese. It’s one of my favorite dishes, mostly because it transports me back to my childhood nearly every time. I decided to try out Annie’s rice pasta version, and it wasn’t bad. Really.
There are two varieties of Annie’s gluten free mac and cheese: this one (seen above) which comes with a sauce packet, and this one which comes in the regular-sized box with a powder packet that requires milk and cheese. I usually prefer powder packets to the sauce packets (again, reminds me of my childhood, but I also like the texture) but I haven’t been able to find it in any local stores. I like the idea of the powder packets because then I know what kind of milk/butter we’re adding (i.e. grass-fed).
The pasta itself came out firm but squishy, exactly like wheat pasta. The sauce packet was a little bland and too gooey, but not inedible.
We were happy enough with the sauce packet version that we just bought the 12-pack of the powder packet variety on Amazon, which came out to $2.30/box. I’ll let you know how it fares!
Update: my wife found the powder-packet box at (of all places) Target, for about $1.85/box.
