Recipe Ingredients for Macaroni and Cheese

1 1/2 cups macaroni
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1/2 cup cauliflower
1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Macaroni and Cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the macaroni and cook according to package directions until al dente. Drain in a colander. While the macaroni is cooking, coat a large saucepan with cooking spreay and heat over medium heat. Add the oil, then the flour, and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture resembles a tick paste but has not browned - 1 to 2 minutes. Add the milk and cook, stirring every now and then, until the mixture begins to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the vegetable puree, cheddar, cream cheese, and seasonings and stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth. Stir in the macaroni and serve warm.
