For those that include some carbs in their diet, this is a really good dish to try. I wanted to make a pasta dish but with some added protein and veggies to give it a healthier twist. So I came up with this….
Cook any Mac and Cheese pasta of your choice as directed on the box. I picked out a gluten-free brand.
I cooked some Al Fresco Sausage on a skillet until brown. Chopped in small cubes. Add in the sausage to the already cooked pasta with cheese sauce.
Steam cauliflower until soft. Let it cool some and then chop into tiny pieces. You can also put it in the food processor and chop.
Add in the cauliflower to the pasta and sausage.
Next, sprinkle with some low-fat cheddar cheese and bread crumbs. I used this gluten-free brand.
To finish, bake at 350 until cheese has melted and bread crumbs have browned, about 20 minutes. For the last 5 turn on the broil for a better crisp.
