"Cauliflower and nutritional yeast add protein and vitamins while blending the cauliflower, Greek yogurt, low-fat sharp Cheddar, and chicken stock create a creamy texture. The sharp Cheddar plus spices maintain a nice cheesy taste. It's better than you might think."

low-sodium chicken broth
reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, cubed

This was wonderful.I used a mixture of shredded cheese and then mixed the sauce up with my immersion blender. No need to heat it up as the heat from the cauliflower melted the shredded cheese. I used whole grain macaroni and popped this under the broiler to get top browned. I'll make this again
I would have rated it a 4, because once I added some garlic salt, it was great, but my wife would have rated it a 1 or 2, because she said she could taste the cauliflower, and hated it. So...I rated it in the middle :) I didn't put the yeast flakes, but left everything else as is.
I love this idea. While I did make changes (added salsa, reduced pasta and cheese, used sour cream instead of yogurt, used water instead of chicken broth, left out the nutmeg, bread crumbs, oil and yeast flakes) due to my own personal tastes, the recipe is great as written as well.
I made some minor changes; light sour cream instead of Greek yogurt, no yeast flakes and no nutmeg. This recipe was easy and delish! I don't even like cauliflower and my daughter knew what was in it and ate it all up. Beats the heaviness of my tasty but cheese heavy Mac and cheese. Will definitely make it again and again!
This was great and no one could tell that there was cauliflower in it. Used some Mexican cheese and no yeast.
Delicious. I prefer this to regular mac and cheese which seems bland in comparison to this. I mashed only half of the cauliflower and left the rest in small florets. First time using the nutritional yeast, it was a good discovery. Served with sweet hot mustard chicken thighs. A good pairing. Will try it with meat loaf.
