DIRECTIONS

  • Steam cauliflower florets until cooked thoroughly but still slightly firm (about 6 minutes). Set aside.
  • Boil pasta until al dente; drain. Mix with cauliflower in a large serving bowl.
  • In a medium sauce pan, cook diced onion in olive oil over medium high heat until translucent (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add pieces of butter and stir until melted.
  • Add flour, salt and pepper to butter and onions; stir and mix thoroughly for about one minute (You can add more butter if the mixture is too "sticky").
  • Add milk and half and half to the sauce pan; bring sauce to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce begins to thicken (4-6 minutes).
  • Remove sauce from heat. Add white cheddar and American cheeses and stir to melt. Once melted, add parmesan cheese and fresh dill and stir to combine.
  • Pour cheese sauce over pasta and cauliflower and toss to coat.
  • Enjoy :).
