I love cheese in baking and I like macaroni, and wanted something that was just a tad more healthy than just plain macaroni.

So I added cauliflower to this recipe and it was very tasty and had at least a vegetable in it!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6

2 cups cauliflower
225 g macaroni
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
1¼ cups milk
¾ cup cream
½ tsp salt -optional
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 cups cheese, grated

For the crust
3 tbsp butter, melted
¾ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced.

For the crust
Combine the melted butter, breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in a bowl and set aside.


For the macaroni
Cook the cauliflower in water until almost tender, and then remove and cut into bite sized pieces when cool enough - do not throw out the water.

Return the water to the boil, and cook the pasta in the same water. Drain.

Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan.

Add the flour mixed with salt, nutmeg and pepper, and stir until well blended.

Slowly add the milk and cream, stirring continuously, until blended.

Simmer for about 2 minutes or until it thickens.

Remove from the heat and add the cheese, stirring until it is melted.

Combine the pasta, cauliflower and cheese sauce and transfer into a buttered casserole dish.


Top with the breadcrumb mixture, and some extra cheese - optional.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the breadcrumbs for a crispy crust - serve.
