Being from the South, macaroni and cheese is one of my absolute favorites, but it really lacks nutrition. I took my favorite macaroni & cheese recipe and gave it a healthy makeover by replacing the noodles with cauliflower, which has a similar texture to pasta. I also added some chopped broccoli so I can get my greens. Whole wheat bread crumbs replace the dried bread crumbs typically used. This dish is so yummy, traditional macaroni & cheese fans young and old will love it!
