Satisfy your mac and cheese cravings with this no-pasta version — a simple 30-minute recipe for roasted cauliflower florets tossed in a rich and thick cheese sauce.



Cheese Sauce:


  • Roast Cauliflower: Preheat oven to 400 F. If any cauliflower florets are larger than 2 inches, cut into smaller pieces. Toss florets with olive oil on foil-lined baking sheet until well-coated, then spread out florets in single layer. Bake at 400 F until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. While baking, proceed to next step to prepare sauce.
  • Make Sauce: Whisk all sauce ingredients together in small saucepan over medium heat until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes, reducing heat as needed so that sauce isn’t hot enough to simmer. Once combined, keep warm over low heat while waiting for cauliflower to bake.
  • Serve: Toss roasted cauliflower with sauce in mixing bowl until well-coated. Serve, and evenly sprinkle parmesan cheese and black pepper on top.
