Number of Servings: 8


    1 lb elbow macaroni
    2.5 c cauliflower
    1 T evoo
    2 T unsalted butter
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 T flour
    1/2 t cayenne pepper
    1 t paprika
    3 c milk (I use nonfat)
    1 c chicken broth
    3 c grated gouda
    1 T dijon mustard
    Salt and fresh ground pepper
    *1 c bell peppers (my own addition- any kind on hand)


Bring large pot of water to boil. Add pasta, cook 5 minutes. Add cauliflower and bell peppers, cook 3 more minutes or until pasta is al dente.

While pasta cooks: heat large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add EVOO and butter until melted. Add onions and cook for 3 minutes. Raise heat; whisk in flour, cayenne and paprika. Whisk until roux bubbles, then cook 1 min more. Whisk in milk and stock, raise heat a little more so mixture comes to a quick boil. Once it begins boiling, drop heat so that it simmers; simmer for 3-5 min until thickened.

Once sauce thickens, add cheese and whisk in until smooth. Add mustard, adjust seasonings (salt/ pepper). Pour sauce over pasta/veggies and combine well. Serve.

Serving Size: makes at least 8 servings
