cauli mac n cheese

A healthier twist.... Mac N Cheese with cauliflower cheese sauce!

I made a simple bechamel and added pureed cauliflower for some grit. No one even knew!

I paired with burgers for dinner. With the leftovers, I added some cooked bacon from Jake's for a standalone meal.

1lb pasta cooked al dente

4T butter

4T flour

2.5 cups warm milk

1 head of cauliflower

1 cup Shredded Cheddar

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese


Optional 4 strips of bacon cut and cooked


Cut all the "flowery" parts of the cauliflower off and steam for 5 minutes. Place on a cutting board and "shred" or "rice" You don't want it over cooked, so have it be al dente!


Mix over low heat the butter and flour

Once combined, slowly add the milk and whisk continuously under you have a cream. Add the cheeses and cauliflower and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Taste....then add salt & pepper as desired.

Pour over noodles to combine and serve!
