    Nice and easy with hidden cauliflower! (Although one of my kids won’t eat it - they have an extra sense that detects hidden vegetables!) But it is very tasty. The sauce is enough for more than 250g of macaroni I’ve made it a couple of times now and 350g seems to work best I also use a bit less cauliflower than the recipe (trying to avoid the hidden veg detector).

    I recommend adding bacon bits on the top before putting in the oven as it really does at to the flavour. Think it would be a bit bland without. This is really filling but a great winter warmer.

    We used brocoli instead of cauliflower and wholemeal pasta instead of maceroni and still came out delicious! Instructions were very clear and was absolutely gorgeous and easy to make.

    Excellent Mac and cheese. Just add a little more cheese then called for.

    Fantastic! I added a breadcrumb/Parmesan/oil mixture for a topper with sliced tomato as the very last bit on top.
    Everyone liked it. Good

    Very nice. The taste is very dependent upon the cheese you use so pick a flavour you love. Also requires appropriate seasoning.
