Easy, delicious and low carb menu. I don’t need more.
Preparation time 35 minutes
INGREDIENTS .. 2 pers
- 60-100 g cavatappi pasta
- 1/2 cauliflower
- 100 g grated cheese
- 1 tbsp ground curry
- 1 tsp ground sweet peper
- 1/4 tsp cayene pepper
- 2 tbsp flour (or corn flour)
- 1-2 cups of coconut milk
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 50-60 g soft cheese
- salt & pepper
- 2 tbsp chopped chives or parsley
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Within the last 3 minutes of cooking time, add cauliflower; drain well.
Melt butter in a 9-inch oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in half and half, and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in cream cheese, Dijon and garlic powder until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
Stir in 1 cup cheese until melted, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more half and half as needed; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Stir in pasta and cauliflower; gently toss to combine. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
Place into oven and bake until bubbly, about 12-15 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.
