Nothing beats smooth, cheesy macaroni and cheese for comfort food. We do healthy versions when possible now. Or we try to do the healthier version : ) Just cutting the pasta out and replacing with fresh cauliflower qualifies as healthier for me. Fresh cauliflower florets are the base of my new comfort food. Add in the smooth, creamy cheese sauce and it is a perfection.
The healthier version of Cauliflower "Mac and Cheese" gets a thumbs up from all at the table tonight!
