  4. Cook the cauliflower in the boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well and place in the baking pan.

  5. Get rid of the water from the cauliflower, you will be using this pot for the cream sauce.

  7. Pour the cauliflower from the baking pan into the pot with the cheese sauce and combine.

  8. Pour the mixture into the baking pan.

  9. Top with remaining ½ cup of shredded cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes

 *I like something crunchy on a baked mac & cheese. I had some sweet potato chips that I crushed up and used on top instead of using breadcrumbs. Works well 😊

**I also cut up 4 carrot sticks and boiled along with the cauliflower. Super good addition.
