gluten free dairy free mac and "cheese"

It was one of those days at work where you just wish to start drinking before you leave.  Or do what we did and have a dinner party.  It must be something in the air because most people had that type of the day!  

I did come home to the beautiful bouquet above on my door handle.  My daughter loves me!



They watched over me while I made dinner for friends.

I made a mac and "cheese" that I could eat.

Gluten Free/Dairy Free Mac and "Cheese"

5 tablespoons olive oil

4 tablespoons potato starch

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

two finger pinch ground paprika, ancho chile pepper, and chipolte chile pepper ground

4 cups hempmilk

8 ounces almond cheese, grated

1 pound gluten free pasta (we like Tinkayada)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large pot, fill with water and bring to a boil.  Add the pasta and cook until al dente.  Strain.  Put in an oven proof casserole dish.

In a large skillet heat the olive oil.  Add the potato starch, pepper, paprika, ancho, and chipolote.  Cook with the oil until bubbly and smooth.  Add the hempmilk a cup at a time.  Stir in the grated almond cheese.  Pour over the pasta and stir.  Bake for 30 minutes until bubbly and a bit golden around the edges.

There you go.  Macaroni and cheese, even though I used shells.  

The party was pretty fabulous.  Lots of laughter.  Thanks all for coming.
