Macaroni and cheese is one of the world’s greatest foods for a reason. It’s decadent. Delectable. A paradise of cheesy wonders. But what if you’re in the mood for some of that cheese-tastic goodness, only you don’t want the high carbs that come with all the pasta? That’s where the genius of cauliflower mac and cheese comes in. Just swap out the noodles for cauliflower, smother it in Cooper Cheese sauce and voila! Lower carbs, all the comfort food deliciousness.

INGREDIENTS

1 head cauliflower, cut into macaroni-sized florets
1 cup whole milk
3 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon white pepper
10 slices Cooper Sharp White cheese
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Fill a large saucepan with water, add a teaspoon of salt, and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower florets and boil for 5-7 minutes. Drain cauliflower in a colander completely, then transfer drained florets to a stack of paper towels and set aside.

Add the milk to sauce pan and bring to a slow simmer. Add the cream cheese, Dijon mustard, white pepper, and 6 slices of Cooper Sharp cheese. Stir until all ingredients are fully combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer the drained and dry florets to an oven-proof dish. Pour cheese sauce over the florets and then top with the remaining Cooper cheese slices.

Bake in center of the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese on top begins to brown.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with parsley for color (if desired), serve and enjoy!
