Ritter's Farm to Table Mac And Cheese with Fresh Cauliflower
1 box Campanelle pasta
1 head of cauliflower
2 cups sharp american cheese (Cooper) 1 cup sharp white cheddar cheese
4 cups whole milk
1/2 stick of butter
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place pasta in boiling water and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Place cooked pasta in a 9 x 12 ungreased baking dish. Wash cauliflower, break into bit-sized pieces, toss in olive oil & place on baking sheet. Roast in oven for approximately 20 minutes or until tender and golden brown. Add cauliflower to pasta and toss so it is evenly distributed.
In a separate pot place milk and butter on low heat until butter melts. Slowly add cheese and stir until completely melted. Pour creamy cheese sauce over pasta and cauliflower. Mix with spoon until blended. Add salt and pepper. Cover with tin foil and place in pre- heated oven. Bake until golden bubbly, approximately 30-45 minutes.
