    I used the cream cheese version for my daughter's baby shower. Since I have family who are gluten intolerate, I used rice macoroni instead of the traditional wheat. For the topping, I used only the shredded cheese and skipped the bread crumbs. It was a huge hit! My family loved being able to eat a long time favorite again!

    Delicious! My ds made this for supper tonight, skipping the vermouth and addding 1/2 cup milk instead. We also used the yogurt option. Thanks for sharing!

    to Chef #204016: I think the recipe can stay, as it specifically states in the description that the macaroni isn't GF, but the sauce is. For GF newbies, Tinkyada makes a spectacular pasta, and can be found at many groceries/health food stores. One of the better GF pasta makers. Also, quinoa pastas are a truly great and flavorful substitute. As for the breadcrumbs? Glutino makes a decent breadcrumb, or (if it can be tolerated) Kellogg's makes Corn Flake Crumbs that are fantastic and really easy to find. When I started a gluten-free diet, I tried so much stuff that tasted like and had the consistency of wet cardboard, that once I finally found really good brands of gluten-free foods I became a lifetime devotee of those brands. I certainly do not feel like I'm missing out on anything these days. :)

    This sounds tasty, but please remove this recipe from the gluten-free category. It specifies macaroni and breadcrumbs, both of which are typically made from wheat. Or conversely, indicate GF by those products. Thanks.
