Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Even better low carb! Use cream, not skim milk. Use only cauliflower and skip the pasta (whole wheat is only marginally better than white anyway). No flour needed, but if you DO need it thickend, add a dash of xanthan gum. All round better for diabetics and everyone, by skipping all those carbs. Submitted by:

Sounds delicious. Is this really less than 200 calories per serving? I guess I don't know what a serving size is Submitted by:

My husband and I found this to be pretty bland, even with the addition of plenty of extra hot sauce. We made it vegetarian and subsituted several different veggies, as well as black bean and chick peas for protein. It was good enough, I just probably won't make it again. Submitted by:

I followed others ideas and drained the tomatoes, reduced the milk to 1 cup and added some low-fat Colby/jack cheese. I'd mix in the cauliflower next time. My issue was it was way too spicy. The cayenne wasn't necessary, the buffalo sauce is sufficient. I used Anchor Bar mild sauce. Submitted by:

This was absolutely delicious. My husband is gluten intolerant so I made 1/2 with gluten free noodles and corn starch to thicken instead of flour.
We followed the other advice and used 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup skim mozzarella, and 1 oz reduced fat cream cheese. Also added extra veggies. Will make again

Loved it! After reading reviews I swapped 1 c skim milk for 1/2 c low fat mozzarella. I drained my tomatoes so I didn't end up with much sauce. I added an extra Tbsp of Frank's Red Hot because my husband and I like our foods a little spicier. Even my husband said I should make it again! Submitted by:

I'm not sure I follow the measurements for the pasta. Isn't 2 cups of dry elbow macaroni about 8oz, not 4oz like the nutrition information says? Submitted by:

I agree the recipe comes out a more like buffalo chicken macaroni with cheese as a topping. I wished I read the idea of using only 1 cup of milk and adding in some cheese with the saved calories. I will do that next time! Submitted by:

I took on board the comments bel - drained the tomatoes and used 1 cup of milk. Increase the cheese flavor by choosing a reduced fat option - more for the same calories. You can also cut out the butter and use an oil spray. It works well too with extra cauliflower. Submitted by:

We really liked this. Because of the comments that it was runny, I only used 1 cup of skim milk and with the calories saved I added 1/3 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese. It was not runny at all and creamy. This felt like real comfort food. Submitted by:

Yum, yum! I did add some lowfat cheddar cheese as a last step. I was more generous with all the veggies (I used the whole can of tomatoes, drained), only used one cup of milk since I added cheese and topped with parsley/green onions. I served it with a healthy salad. It looked just like the picture. Submitted by:
