Cauliflower Mockaroni and Cheese Take 2

My husband's favorite dish is macaroni and cheese! Mac and cheese is one of my favorite meals too next to pizza of course! It is amazing how many low carb friendly recipes are made with cauliflower. Thank goodness for that! I wouldn't know what to do without all the great substitutes for pasta, bread and rice! 

What made me decide to make mac and cheese? I was putting together my husband's Valentine's Day care package to be sent off to Afghanistan where he was deployed and filled it with all types of goodies such as a music CD filled with love songs and photos, cookies, candy, chips, snacks, and you guessed it.... mac and cheese! This recipe has a nice cheesy flavor and definitely eased my craving for mac and cheese! Enjoy!
