Salmon Mac & Cheese

Salmon Mac & Cheese

Recipe Details:

This is a quick and easy dish, that rises to the gourmet level with the addition of flaked salmon. Because it’s actually dairy and gluten free, I have renamed it “Not Mac Nor Cheese”. For variation you can add hamburger and olives to the Cheddar style, or keep it vegan with the addition of chopped steamed veggies. For a more economical version consider substituting tuna.
