“My family loves mac and cheese but since I have found out I am allergic to wheat I have not had much success with it until I came up with this recipe.I have written it out for a family but since my kids have left home now I split it into 2 casseroles and freeze one in a freezer to oven casserole and just take it out of the freezer and pop it into a cold oven. Turn on to 350°F for about 30 minutes and dinners ready.”
