Great for a side dish or a kids meal. Whole wheat pasta elbows are combined with cauliflower purée (this sneaks in some vegetable and lightens the dish), bits of cauliflower, cheddar cheese, chives and baked with a crispy crust of whole wheat Ritz crackers.

Loved the idea of sneaking cauliflower into this dish, but the chunks in my portion were huge! They were also the thick, tough, inedible stems.

I ended up having this for lunch the day after it was delivered. While it looked a bit bland, after crisping it up in the toaster oven, it became a luscious, toasty, creamy, but not-too-heavy winner. DON'T just pop this in the microwave. Toast it!

My son loved this mac-n-cheese dish - didn't even realize it had bits of cauliflower in it. It was smooth and creamy.

I love that this dish has cauliflower in it which is a trick I use as well, however my kids did NOT like it. They are not picky eaters, so I was surprised. I think it was the whole wheat pasta. The sauce was also not very creamy.
5 Stars
I know technically it came from the kids menu, but my thirty-one year old "kid" loved it. So did I. Awesome.
3 Stars
I was really looking forward to this dish. While the flavor was fine, the pasta was mushy and overcooked, and I could barely distinguish between noodle and cauliflower.

I loved the idea of adding the cauliflower and that it's a healthier version of a classic, but my kids (4 and 2) didn't care for it. The cauliflower is in chunks, so it's obvious. They noticed it immediately. The pasta was dry, not at all creamy.

Delish, boys loved it!
4 Stars
I thought it was good and was hoping for a secret way to give them vegetables. Unfortunately, I think they saw through it. My girls didn't care for it.

The three year old loved it: the cheese and chives on the side were fun! (Though he figured out "I don't like the big ones, I only like the little ones" surprisingly quickly, and picked around the bigger cauliflower florets, hunting out the pasta.)
