    The Normans's Note:

    Sourced from the recipe section of a friends Woman's Day Magazine. I have a hankering for anything with cauliflower lately. You could substitute other vegetables if cauliflower is not your thing.

      This was a filling and yummy dish. Pure comfort food. My picky 17-year-old took one bite and said, "ooooh, this is GOOD." Then she took a second bite and turned to me with a suspicious look in her eye--"this is quite a tricky way to hide cauliflower!" The vegetable blends in perfectly with the macaroni and cheese--your child will never know it's there until their taste buds have already told them this is delicious. I gave it 4 stars because while there was nothing that couldn't be worked around, I found it odd to have metric measurements alternating with western. I also didn't know the boccocino was a mozzarella cheese. It didn't say whether to cook the bacon, so I assume you are supposed to put it on raw, but I was worried the low cook temperature for only 20-30 minutes would not cook it sufficiently. So I cooked bacon first and increased the temp anyway to 300 degrees--just seemed necessary to me to heat casserole all the way through in the given time. But fun and excellent dish.
