Fakeroni and Cheese THM S

Posted on

I was craving a good macaroni and cheese but had already had Dream Fields pasta that week and wanted to stay on track so I thought I would try something new. Cauliflower + wonderful cheese sauce = fakeroni and cheese.

I made a small batch of sauce similar to this one   I made a small batch of sauce similar to this one. With a basic roux, cream and of course lots of cheese.

Cauliflower has a tendency to get mushy when baked, at least in my experiences. I decided that I would roast it to try and get some of the extra moisture out. After I steamed it, from frozen, I cut it into small pieces and placed them on a cookie sheet and roasted for minutes. Once its roasted mix it into the cheese.

Add it to a small baking dish, cover with cheese and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until it’s bubbly.

This would be an S if you follow THM. I loved this right out of the oven, but it was even better reheated in the microwave the next day!
