Baked Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Baked Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
In This Article

This creamy pasta bake gets a healthy upgrade with a silky cauliflower-cheese made with a fraction of the calories found in a typical mac and cheese. In the filling, we also use part whole-wheat pasta and part crispy roasted cauliflower florets for a hearty dish without all of the extra carbohydrates. Don’t be intimidated by the length of this recipe: It uses few ingredients and very simple techniques. If you are cooking for a larger crowd, this recipe can easily be doubled. Please note you may need to puree the cauliflower bechamel in batches.

If you’re looking for comfort food, look no further. Not only will you enjoy the creaminess of mac and cheese, you get a serving of vegetables, which means you don’t have to abandon your health journey while you enjoy a meal.
