With five kids, I need easy recipes that my kids will eat that also sneak in extra nutrition! This is a family favorite mac and cheese made gluten-free, and even better, I snuck in loads of cauliflower, so the kids still get their servings of vegetables! It could easily feed 4-6 people, but the macros are calculated on a 4-person serving.

    6. Add the cream, sour cream, mustard, and Parmesan to the pan and stir well, allowing the mixture to warm through. Season with salt and ground white pepper.
    7. Remove from the heat and add in all cooked macaroni and the drained cauliflower.
    8. Mix well to evenly coat, then pour the whole lot into a suitable-sized baking dish (like the one you would use for a lasagne).
