Here’s my review of Amy’s Frozen Mac & Cheese (gluten free). It’s a big favorite with my family.
Mac & cheese is definitely one of our favorite comfort foods, especially as a warm meal on a frigid, winter afternoon. This week we’ve been enjoying Amy’s Rice Mac & Cheese.
Unlike Annie’s Rice Pasta & Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese that we reviewed in December, Amy’s comes frozen and can be cooked in the microwave in minutes, making it the perfect on-the-go lunch for busy days.
And did I mention it’s delicious?
Amy’s Rice Mac & Cheese is made with certified organic rice macaroni and organic milk. It’s soy free and tree nut free, and it contains 0g trans fat, no added MSG, no preservatives, no GMOs, and no bioengineered ingredients. Amy’s assures that “all dairy ingredients are made with pasteurized, rBST hormone-free milk and do not contain animal enzymes or animal rennet.” No meat, fish, shellfish, poultry, eggs, or peanuts are ever used in any Amy’s products, which means that this mac & cheese is vegetarian friendly as well.
Quick and Easy Prep and Cook Time
Amy’s Rice Macaroni & Cheese should be kept frozen until you are ready to prepare it. It can be cooked in a microwave, toaster oven, or conventional oven. The microwave is the quickest way to heat it up.
You open the box, remove the overwrap from the cardboard container, place uncovered on a tray in the microwave, and cook on high for 3-4 minutes.
Then stir the noodles.
Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes, and voila! A delicious gluten free lunch for you to enjoy.
Alternatively, you can preheat a conventional oven to 375°F. Remove the overwrap and place tray on a cookie sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until heated throughout. I found that the mac & cheese did not burn as easily when cooked in the oven.
The cooking instructions should be used only as a guide. Ovens vary so it’s important to keep a close watch on your noodles to make sure they don’t burn. The cardboard container is sturdy enough to eat out of so you don’t even have to worry about washing dishes.
The only drawback is that Amy’s rice mac & cheese comes in a package of one that is only enough to feed one person. We recommend buying several packages if you have a big family or are planning to serve the mac & cheese for dinner.
Even though this mac & cheese is frozen, it has a wonderful homemade taste. The cheese sauce is thick, creamy, and smooth with a subtle cheddar flavor. The rice noodles do not fall apart. They are tender and have no back taste and blend well with the cheese. We love how convenient it is to make this mac & cheese and definitely recommend it to all of our friends on a gluten-free diet.

My daughter and I were wondering about the mac and cheese from Amy’s. She is the mac and chees lover. I will have to get her one!
I hope she likes Amy’s as much as my kids do.
Often times macaroni and cheese is served at parties and other gatherings. My son brings Amy’s, enjoys his lunch and he doesn’t feel left out.

I hate that everybody is trying to go “gluten free” dieting. That is for people with celiac disease, wheat allergy, or wheat sensitivity not for people who just want to lose a few pounds. Foods that contain gluten also contain vitamins, minerals, and other essential electrolytes.
Amy’s actually makes an organic elbow macaroni and cheese for folks who do not have a gluten sensitivity.
This review is for folks who are gluten intolerant and long for that same cheese sauce.

Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after browsing through many of the posts I
realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely delighted I discovered
it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back often!

I can’t eat your single size serving in one sitting. Can I sagely reheat the leftovers of your frozen gluten free rice mac and cheese?
Barbara Bianchi says
Hi Pam, To be on the safe side, I would caution against reheating leftovers from frozen rice pasta.
