Yet Another Real Simple Recipe

Lat night I made the mac and cheese out of Real Simple magazine. You can tell I've really been cooking from it because it's covered in food splatters. I didn't take pictures of it because it's mac and cheese... you probably know what it looks like, plus in photographs it would just look like a pile of slimy yellow slop.

I modified it a little from the recipe in the magazine because I'm lazy creative.

14oz boz of whole wheat macaroni
8 oz block of sharp cheddar, grated
1 lb bag of chopped cauliflower
1 1/2 cups of low fat sour cream
splash of milk... 1/4 cup maybe
salt, pepper, garlic and parsley to taste

Cook the pasta and cauliflower, stir everything else in until melty.

At that point, I just started eating it right out of the pot. But according to the recipe I was supposed to have put it all in a casserole dish and sprinkled some bread crumbs and olive oil over the top, baking it until it was a little brown and crispy on top.

This recipe was "healthy" sort of. Maybe, if you don't count the cheese? There's a vegetable in there! I should get credit for that.

Ya, it was really good. I would add a little more cheese to it though. Maybe just some shredded cheese out of a bag to make it a little gooier.
