| This recipe is a bit of an odd one for me, in that it appears to embody some level of growth on my part. The inception of the idea came from a request for more "kid friendly" recipes. As a big kid myself, I LOVE macaroni and cheese. I assume most ALL kids do!|
This is not Macaroni and Cheese.
My plan had been to use Dreamfield's Pasta when I decided to add a Mac 'n Cheese recipe to my website. However, I'm fresh off of reading "Wheat Belly" and currently of the mindset that pretty much anything "wheat" is bad and evil. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably regress at some point, but, as of this writing, I'm trying to steer clear of grains (tasty, tasty grains).
So, this recipe is Mac n' Cheese, but ... with cauliflower nibblets, instead!
Truth be told, when all is said and done, and I had a big plate of this sitting in front of me... it was delicious! I didn't mind giving up the pasta, one iota!
Pasta Note: If you wanted to use Pasta, you absolutely could. To use pasta, you would pre-cook the pasta, but cook it about half as long as it states on the box. It will continue to cook, as it's baked.
Smoky Note: I'm a big fan of smoky flavors, but recognize not everyone is. I suggest two smoked cheeses in the ingredients. Smoked cheeses are optional. Substitute one, or both, with un-smoked cheeses and the end result will STILL be tasty!
