After tasting this delicious baked version of mac and cheese, your kids will never want the boxed version again! I got this recipe from my junior high home economics teacher and it's a winter favorite in our house.

Since I have Celiac we use 2 tbsp of Wendy Warks flour blend (using guar gum instead of xanthan gum) and rice pasta.

How to Make Blue Ribbon Baked Mac and Cheese


  • 1Boil water and cook macaroni or other pasta for 8 minutes, drain.
  • 2Melt margarine, salt, pepper, and flour together in a saucepan, add milk and stir constantly until mixture begins to thicken.
  • 3Add cubed Velveeta cheese and continue stirring until all of the cheese has melted.
  • 4In a casserole dish, add the cooked macaroni, then pour the cheese sauce on top. Stir with a spatula so it's well combined. Sprinkle the cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top.
  • 5Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, or until bubbling.
  • 6You can also substitute light cream cheese for half of the Velveeta cheese to make it even creamier. We like to triple the recipe and freeze the unbaked portions for easy dinners.
