Mac & Cheese?

There are diehard KD fans out there. The Honey is one of them and nothing else will do. Another KD fan, a good friend of mine, tried to explain it to me and I just didn’t get it. Maybe it’s because I’m not a big fan. I would eat it once in a while, but I like cheese and I’d much rather have real cheese than the powdered stuff. As a concession on both our parts we tried out some gluten-free cheese sauce mix.

The rice pasta I had been using wasn’t impressing me much anymore so when I saw some cutsie corn pasta I thought it would go nicely with this Riego’s cheese sauce. It’s just as simple to make: cook your pasta, drain it, then add the cheese powder and milk. Just like KD.

One of the things I like is that the ingredients are pronounce-able and are real. It tastes pretty good too – not like homemade mac & cheese and not KD, but still good. The only thing I wasn’t too fond of was the quantity & price. The bags of corn pasta I buy are not that big; these cutsie things served the two of us and there didn’t seem to be enough sauce. I just kept stirring hoping that every little piece would get covered. To have it really saucy like its counterparts, two packages might be needed and that bumps up the price. Each package is around $2, depending on the store and compared to homemade and KD, that’s a little pricey. Is it worth it for convenience? I’m not sure. But if you’re just making dinner for one, go for it.
