My kids are obsessed with boxed mac & cheese and I just don’t love those lengthy ingredient lists, even from the healthier brands. So I decided to make my own super creamy and delicious One-Pan Mac & Cheese that’s definitely still decadent but made with just a handful of real, simple ingredients (including riced cauliflower because why not throw some veggies in there!). For a step-by-step video of how to make it, check out this reel.
1 ½ cup milk of choice (I used organic grass-fed A2 milk)
1 cup water
2 tbsp grass-fed butter
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 ½ cups pasta of choice (shells, elbows, and conchiglie all work great)
1 cup frozen riced cauliflower
1 ¼ cup shredded cheddar*
1 ¼ cup shredded parmesan*
½ tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
*I recommend buying a block of cheese and shredding it, rather than using a bag of pre-shredded cheese. It tastes fresher and gets creamier!
