 Cheesy Beef and Macaroni Skillet

1 pound ground beef

½ Teaspoon salt

1 Cup, Gluten Free Elbow Macaroni ( cook macaroni according to package directions, except for 1 minute. Remove & drain water slightly early so macaroni doesn’t get too soft when adding sauce.) I used the GF Penne pasta this time because I was out of the elbow macaroni.

1 Cup freshly grated Gluten Free Cheddar cheese (reserve for topping)

Brown ground beef & salt, & drain. Add cooked & drained macaroni, stir and remove skillet from fire.   I Use the same pan to make the cheese sauce that I used to boil the macaroni.

Cheese Sauce

1 Cup Milk or water

½  Cup Black Coffee

½ Teaspoon salt

2 Teaspoons additive free paprika

1 Teaspoon additive free garlic powder

2 Heaping Tablespoons of Tom Sawyer Gluten Free flour

1 Cup freshly grated Gluten Free Cheddar cheese

On medium heat whisk coffee, water, spices & Gluten Free flour. When this starts to thicken add the cheese. When all ingredients are mixed well, remove from heat and pour over beef and macaroni.  Put skillet back on a medium heat, & stir until it starts to bubble, remove from heat, top with remaining cheese and serve. If you like it really creamy, just double the sauce recipe.
