Here is a delicious recipe for homemade Mac & Cheese with Beef Franks! I used Spelt Flour in the recipe. You can however use regular flour if you choose to.

This is such a nice comfort food for me! I have a gluten intolerance so I made it using Spelt as it is a mild flour that has minimal gluten in it. I can handle eating it, which is why I chose to cook with it. 

I also opted for gluten free pasta – again you can use whatever your favorite is.
