Creamy Mac and Cheese two ways

Forget using boxed mac and cheese especially the ones with the powered cheese packet. These 2 mac and cheese dishes will satisfy anyone who loves a good mac and cheese without sacrificing your health. The first one is a typical mac and cheese, the kind I had as a kid out of the box and the second is a little healthier adding broccoli to get in an extra veggie. Both are delicious, I hope you enjoy.

1 box gluten free pasta I used these elbows for the first dish and these shells for the second dish
1/4 cup grass fed butter
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk
2 cups shredded goat cheddar

Cook macaroni according to package directions. In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.

Stir in the flour, salt and pepper.

Stir in the milk. Cook for 5 minutes then stir in the cheese and cook until melted. Drain macaroni, add to cheese sauce and stir until all is coated.

Broccoli Version:
Steam or boil broccoli until fork goes through easily but not mushy. Transfer to a bowl. When pasta is done add the broccoli along with the pasta to the cheese sauce and stir to combine.
