Description: This is the ultimate comfort food. Makes for a great pot-luck or Thanksgiving/Christmas item (Non low-carbers will never know the difference!) If you want even lower carbs, eliminate the bread crumbs and use parmesan instead. (But the breadcrumbs make a delicious difference!)
Ingredients: 1 box of Dreamfields elbow macaroni

2 or 3 cups sharp cheddar (regular can be used too)

Additional 1 cup cheddar or 1/2 cup parmesan for top

3/4 cup heavy cream

2 Tablespoons Vital Wheat Gluten

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

2 cups of water

1/4 cup of Butter (room temperature)

1 Tablespoon mustard

1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 low-carb pieces of bread in food processor or blender to make breadcrumbs (My bread is 4 net carbs per slice)

1 teaspoon Garlic powder

1 teaspoon Seasoned salt
How To Prepare: Start cooking macaroni (follow directions on package.)

In a large bowl mix together, cheese, cream, butter, mustard, garlic powder, seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.

In another bowl, blend together vital wheat gluten, xanthan gum and 2 cups of water. Let sit for a couple of minutes, then mix into cheese mixture.

When pasta is done, cool under cold running water and drain.

Mix cheese mixture with the pasta and pour into a 9x13 glass baking dish.

Sprinkle breadcrumbs and additional cheddar or parmesan over top. You can also sprinkle a bit more seasoning salt and garlic powder on top.

Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and top is lightly browned.

Serve immediatley or freeze single portions for a quick lunch.
