Keto/GF: Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Keto/GF: Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

I don’t eat pasta very much even if its gluten free pasta. I really wanted something hearty to go with dinner. I have before made the dairy free mac and cheese so I used the same ingredients but instead of pasta, I replaced it with cauliflower. It came our great and I will be doing a lot more in the near future.
