Perfect Gluten Free Low Lactose Easy Macaroni and Cheese Recipe for Sensitive Stomachs, with Aged Cheeses

When we talk comfort foods, macaroni and cheese is probably high up on the list for many of us. Creamy goodness, rich and delicious, it is something most of us have positive associations with.

Though I loved macaroni and cheese as a child, as an adult it was something that was pretty much a no go for me. Gluten was out, and for quite a long time, dairy was as well. I made gluten free vegan mac and cheese and it was delicious, but to be honest, not quite as good as dairy mac and cheese.

Eventually, though, my stomach healed enough that I was able to eat limited hard cheeses (blue cheese, camembert, and brie were the first ones I was able to tolerate) and then over time my stomach got stronger and stronger, and now, while I can't have milk or soft cheeses that aren't fermented, I am able to have cream and cheeses such as swiss, cheddar, and parmesan.

And so, now that I am able to handle a greater variety of cheeses, I figured out a way to make delectable macaroni and cheese using these terrific flavorful cheeses and all things that don't hurt my stomach. It is amazing and I'm so excited to share this recipe with you. While this isn't a good recipe for someone with a milk allergy, if you are lactose intolerant there's a good chance you may be able to enjoy this recipe pain free. Its not lactose free, but it is definitely low on lactose.

And even if you can handle all sorts of dairy, this recipe is just so good that you should try it anyhow!

Perfect Gluten Free Low Lactose Macaroni and Cheese Recipe for Sensitive Stomachs, with Aged Cheeses

2 cups or 500 ml heavy cream
2 slices swiss cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 package gluten free pasta, cooked

1. Cook your pasta. I used Tinkiyada brown rice pasta as a special treat, but any gluten free (or regular, if you don't need gluten free) pasta works.

2. Mix all the other ingredients together in a saucepan, heating it on low until it melts.

3. Mix in the cooked pasta.

4. Serve hot.


See, it's easy!

Do you have a sensitive stomach? How do you handle dairy? Are you a fan of mac and cheese? How do you make yours? Does this look like a recipe you'd try?

  1. We have a family recipe for quattro formaggi pasta that I figure tastes similarly to mac and cheese. We prepare it with butter, gauda, gorgonzola, parmesan and sour cream, spiced up with white pepper and a little bit of white wine. :)
