DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375•.
  • Cook Pasta as per directions on the package. While pasta is cooking, chop cauliflower into ¼ - ½“ pieces, place in a steamer and steam until just tender. Set aside. Sauté the onion in olive oil until translucent. Set those with the cauliflower.
  • Drain the pasta and put into a large baking dish. Add the cauliflower and onions, mix all of it together.
  • To make sauce, melt butter in a sauce pan on low heat. Add flour to melted butter. Warm the milk in the microwave for about 1 minute, then add it to the flour and butter mixture. Turn heat for saucepan to medium high and stir constantly until sauce thickens. Should be about 4-5 minutes. When sauce is thick, turn heat down to very low and add cheese, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt and chili powder (if using). Stir until it is smooth.
  • Pour the sauce over the pasta, cauliflower and onion. Mix together until well blended. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top, then sprinkle the parmesan over that.
  • Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
