The Source is a bulk foods store with an outlet in North Ward Townsville offering a range of pulses, single origin flours, gluten free flours, gluten free pastas, honey, nuts, nut mixes and teas to name a few.
The tri-colour pasta is made from quinoa, rice, spinach and beetroot and while I know my teenager will realise that the colour comes from something he doesn’t like and therefore will not eat it, I think children will find it fun and enticing.
2 cups gf fresh chorizo
¼ cup sundried tomato, chopped
20 g butter
20 g gluten free cornflour
375 g (1 ½ cups) milk
200 g cheddar cheese, grated plus extra to top
¼ teaspoon mustard powder (or 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard and 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard)
250 g gluten free pasta (macaroni, spirals, penne, shells)
Preheat oven to 180C.
Remove skins from chorizo and break up or cut into small pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in frying pan and cook the sausage, breaking up as you go.
In a medium saucepan melt the butter and then stir in the flour to create a smooth butter flour mix. Slowly add the milk a tablespoon at a time stirring to create a smooth sauce. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly to ensure no lumps. Stir in the cheese and mustard powder and bring back to a gentle simmer. Continue simmering on low heat for about 4 minutes or until smooth and thick.
Cook the pasta according to the instructions.
Add the pasta, cooked sausage and sundried tomatoes to the cheese sauce. Stir to combine and transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with the extra cheese and bake for 20 minutes until bubbling and cheese has melted.
