A family favorite, traditional macaroni and cheese gets an extra veggie boost from a bit of cauliflower.

Ingredients

Preparation

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Add the cauliflower during the last 3 minutes of cooking time. Drain and set aside.

In a saucepot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the cheeses until smooth; season with salt and pepper. Stir reserved macaroni and cauliflower into the cheese sauce. Serve immediately.

Notes

For a crispy-topped macaroni and cheese, preheat oven to 400° F. Transfer macaroni and cheese to a buttered baking dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
