  • 1/2 pound whole wheat shell pasta (around 3 cups worth of dry pasta)
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • olive oil, to drizzle
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch



Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Chop cauliflower into florets and place on a baking sheet
Drizzle with olive oil (I used less than 1/4 cup worth)
Sprinkle on salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, and use hands to toss and combine
Roast cauliflower for 20 - 30 minutes, checking 2-3 times to flip/stir, until slightly blackened on the edges
While cauliflower is roasting, cook pasta according to package instructions (I did not salt my pasta water)
In a large sauce pan, add mozzarella, parmesan, milk, and cornstarch
Heat to medium and stir for 5 - 10 minutes, until it forms a thick cheese sauce
Once sauce is done, add in cooked pasta and roasted cauliflower and stir to combine
Salt and pepper to taste if necessary (I did not add any additional to mine)
Serve immediately
