November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (80 votes)

This ooey-gooey pasta dish is a crowd-pleaser for adults and kids alike—think rich and creamy macaroni-and-cheese tossed with cauliflower and chicken. Serve with a spinach salad.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Somehow this 35 minute dish turned into an hour. Basic recipe, nothing to spectacular about this, lacked in any bold flavor. Although adding some hot sauce was a good remedy, you can pretty much do any add ons to this. Good, but not great...

Overall this dish was great! Instead of the cauliflower I added broccolli as well as 3 cloves of garlic (I cooked the garlic with the onions). Instead of using dry white wine, I substituted it for unsalted chicken stock. I also used a little less milk so that my sauce would not be runny. These minor changed made for a great meal!!

I love all of these ingredients, but this was really not a very good recipe. Three cups was far too much milk to make the sauce very thick (and I knew it, as I was pouring it in, yet I didn't stop!), so my sauce was runny and it basically ruined the whole dish. I think next time I'll save the (EXPENSIVE) Gruyère for my Swiss Fondue!!!

I used this with leftover rock cornish game hen. I did not have cauliflower so substituted red, orange, and yellow peppers and added some fresh spinach at the end just to wilt it. It was beautiful and colorful--a pretty and healthy way to use up leftover poultry. Next time I will add some garlic with the onions for a little flavor boost.

I forgot to put in the wine and I don't think I would put it in next time. I think I would use chicken broth instead, although I just added a couple of ladles of pasta water to thin out the sauce. All I had was smoked gruyere cheese. We thought this was delicious!
