Step 1

Prepare penne according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile steam cauliflower in a steamer basket over boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Whisk soy milk, cream, eggs, salt and cayenne in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, stir in cheese and mustard. Set over medium heat.

Add pasta, cauliflower and butter. Cook, stirring constantly until sauce becomes smooth and thick, about 5 minutes. Meantime, heat broiler and place a rack in middle of the oven.

Transfer the pasta mixture from the saucepan to a 8 inch square or 9 inch round ovenproof dish. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, just until a crust develops. Serve immediately.
