Mac & Cheese with Tomatoes

From Amy Green of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free

 

Ingredients:

  • Kosher salt
  • Vegetable oilGluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese
  • 1/2 pound gluten-free quinoa elbows
  • 2 cups of 1% milk
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 6 ounces Gruyere, grated (2 cups)
  • 4 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar, grated (1 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/3 pound fresh tomatoes (2 small)
  • 3/4 cup brown rice bread crumbs

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Drizzle oil and add 1 T. salt to a large pot of boiling water. Add the macaroni and cook according to the directions on the package, 5-8 minutes. Drain well and rinse pasta with cold water.

Meanwhile, heat the milk in a small saucepan, but don't boil it. Melt 3 T. of butter in a large (4-quart) pot and add the gluten-free flour. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring with a whisk. While whisking, add the hot milk and cook for a minute or two more, until thickened and smooth. Off the heat, add the Gruyere, Cheddar, 1 T. salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add the cooked macaroni and stir well. Pour into a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

Slice the tomatoes and arrange on top. Melt the remaining 1 T. of butter, combine with the bread crumbs, and sprinkle on the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the macaroni is browned on the top.

Note: You can make this dish ahead of time - just add the tomatoes and bread crumbs right before putting it into the oven.
