1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 pound whole wheat pasta
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup flour

1 cup chicken broth
2 cups shredded shard cheddar cheese

In the same boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente then drain in a
colander. Add the pasta to the cauliflower.
2)While the pasta is working, ask your GH to melt the butter in a saucepan

about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese. Whisk in the mustard and season with
pepper. Stir the cheese sauce into the pasta and cauliflower. Yum-o!
