This mac-and-cheese recipe is kept light by avoiding heavy cream and using cauliflower instead. It is simply perfect! The addition of the cauliflower bulks up the sauce and gives the illusion of that cheesy goo which we all hate to love!

Step 3
Cook Whole Grain Pasta (12 ounce), cauliflower, and broccoli florets together in a large stockpot of salted water, according to package directions for the pasta.
