Yummmmm.
This is much better than the Atkins Mac and Cheese. Less carbs.

Try it using 1 cup bottled alfredo sauce(instead of the cream)and 1 cup mild cheddar cheese! It was really, really good

Would this work with frozen cauliflower, or does it have to be fresh?

I'll have to try this. Mockafoni and Cheese from somewhere here is my current favorite side dish. Even my non-lc company loves it!

Ques for Dottie

If I use a bag of frozen cauliflower, I just thaw and drain it? I don't have to cook it at all first?

I was a little skeptical about the cauliflower buy O M G this was sooooo delicious! i doubled the cheese sauce mix, and it came out like a chunky cheese-potato soup, FABULOUS! I like this even BETTER than real mac-n-cheese, which is saying a lot since that was one of my fave foods. WOW!

Wow... I must try this tomorrow, I am a Mac n Cheese fanatic.

What we need is one that tastes just like Stouffer's Mac and cheese... but with cauliflower... and LC. Hmm.

Tried this tonight... it was DELICIOUS! Only one problem, there is no way I can consider that 6 servings!!! I could eat half of the bowl in a second!

I try not to cook it when the kids are going to be here. I think they associate the smell with that of a skunk!

Awesome job. Another taste I miss. I'm going to try it with cottage cheese instead of the cream cheese. I've had mac and cheese with cottage cheese before and it amazed me. Thanks for the recipe!

I can't believe I waited so long to try this recipe. (Some early fiascoes with "fake" baked things soured me on trying to replace carb-heavy foods with low carb "substitutes".)

I finally cooked this last night -- it was *amazing*.

I will definitely be cooking this again.

Made this tonight and it was okay, but I thought the califlower taste was still to strong to pass off as a good mac and cheese sub.

IMHO fresh cauliflower, steamed in the microwave is the only way to go...much cleaner taste, not skunky at all.

I just got home from Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws. This recipe was a huge hit. Everyone liked it, even my uber picky brother in law. I didn't have much cheddar so I used dubliner cheese in the sauce, then sprinkled 1/2 cup or so of sharp cheddar on top, a few pats of butter, salt and pepper, and put it in the over til bubbly. It was phenomenal and I think cauliflower is gross so that's saying something. Thanks again!
