This recipe is very easy, and makes a great base for adding other ingredients; either as a way to get your kids to eat them, or for food challenges. While it’s not quite the same without the yellow cheese, it is still sticky and a bit cheesey, and has the crunchy top. It’s also gluten-free if you use GF pasta.

Low Chemical / FAILSAFE
This recipe is gluten-free if you use gluten-free pasta. I use Olive Green Organics Amaranth & Rice Penne.
If amines are OK, or you are doing the amines challenge, add 100g grated cheese instead of cream cheese.
This recipe makes a great base for adding other pureed, mashed or finally chopped vegetables, or finely chopped allowed cooked meats. Stir them in at step 5.
