Annie's Way In 10 Minutes

  1. BOIL: 6 cups water in a medium saucepan.
  2. STIR IN: pasta, bring to boil. Cook 8-10 minutes, or until done, stirring occasionally.
  3. DRAIN PASTA: in colander. While pasta is draining...
  4. ADD: 3 Tbsp lowfat milk to the warm saucepan.
    • (OPTIONAL: Add 2 Tbsp unsalted butter for richer flavor)
  5. SPRINKLE: cheese over milk; stir to combine.
  6. ADD: cooked pasta back to saucepan and stir well.

Annie's Suggestions: For a RICHER flavor, add 2 Tbsp unsalted butter. For a CREAMY, TANGY version, replace milk with 1/2 cup lowfat yogurt.

Keep in a Cool, Dry Place.

Just like the regular shells when boiled for 4-5 mins
My favorite-of-all-time mac and cheese is the Annie's brand white cheddar shells, but I do not like to consume white pastas or breads. I purchased two boxes of the rice shells as testers when I stumbled upon them on the Swanson's site. The first box was cooked as directed and they came out mushy, indeed, albeit extremely tasty. The second box was cooked for 5 minutes (tested at 4 minutes, at which point the noodles were al dente) and then rinsed under cool water. They came out perfectly, so I advise anyone switching to rice pasta to boil for 4 to 5 minutes and then rinse in cool water. For lunch or dinner ideas, add ground broccoli or peas and a can of tuna. Very delicious! For the yellow cheddar mac, give some ground beef or turkey a chance.

Mushy mac
I purchased this gluten free product at a local health store at a higher price. After preparing according to directions, the shells were too soft. I purchased from Swanson for a lower price and did not cook as long. The flavor is good but I did not enjoy the texture. Both times the shells were too soft and mushy. It's a healthy product with a good taste, but I will not purchase again.
