directions

Coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

 

In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and butter. Set aside.

 

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain, cover, and keep warm. 

 

Place cauliflower and 2 tablespoons milk in food processor. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.  Remove from food processor and place in microwavable bowl. 

 

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the 1 ½ cups of milk with the flour until well-combined. Pour milk mixture into a large saucepan and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat, whisking constantly.  Reduce heat and simmer, stirring, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. 

 

Heat cauliflower in microwave oven for 2 minutes on HIGH. Add to mixture in the pan. Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted.  Add the parsley, pepper, and macaroni to pan and stir until well combined.  Pour mixture into baking dish.  

 

Top macaroni and cheese with breadcrumb mixture and serve immediately, or preheat broiler and broil for 2 minutes or until top is golden brown. 

 

Prep Tip: Use leftover cooked cauliflower or frozen cauliflower.
