Day 25 - Mac n Cheese n Cauliflower

This recipe came about as kind of an amalgamation of what I had and what sounded good and this recipe from Rachael Ray. The taste was pretty good, but I think the sauce got to hot on mine when I was making it, because it started to separate.

Mac N Cheese N Cauliflower
  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 lb Gouda cheese, grated
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Add cauliflower florets during the last 3 minutes of cooking.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil and the butter. Add the onions and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the flour, salt, and pepper and cook for about 2 more minutes. Add the milk and vegetable stock and cook until sauce starts to thicken.
  3. Stir in Gouda cheese, until melted and creamy. Add drained pasta and cauliflower. Yum!
Apparently I didn't take pictures of this dinner. Sorry about that!
