Cauliflower Bacon Mac 'N' Cheese

with Cavatappi and Scallions

Bacon. Mac ‘n’ cheese. Need we say more? Okay, how about gooey, melty, bouncy, smoky, savory, and cascading with curls of cavatappi? Not convinced? Well, there’s a good amount of calcium-rich cauliflower in there too—roasted, not boiled, to bring out its natural sweetness and give it a crisp-edged tenderness that is sure to please.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Prep and Roast Cauliflower

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Toss cauliflower on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.

Boil Pasta

Once water is boiling, add cavatappi to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water (1½ cups for 4 servings), then drain.

Cook Bacon

Meanwhile, heat a large, dry pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, flipping occasionally, until just crispy, 6-10 minutes. Turn off heat. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Discard all but 1 tsp bacon fat (2 tsp for 4 servings) from pan.

Make Cheese Sauce

Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in same pan over medium heat. Add scallion whites and cook until softened, 1 minute. Add flour and stir constantly until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk, ¼ cup reserved pasta cooking water (½ cup for 4), and stock concentrate. Increase heat to high and boil until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat, then whisk in cheese. Season with salt (we used ½ tsp; use 1 tsp for 4) and pepper.

Finish Mac 'N' Cheese

Chop bacon into small pieces. Stir bacon, cavatappi, and cauliflower into pan with sauce. TIP: If sauce seems dry, add remaining reserved cooking water, 1 TBSP at a time, until creamy.


Divide mac ’n’ cheese between plates. Garnish with scallion greens and serve.
