Made You Look! It’s Cheesy Baked Cauliflower “Mac and Cheese”

Who doesn’t like creamy, cheesy, bowl of mac and cheese? Well, when I discovered my gluten-intolerance, traditional mac and cheese went out the window. Thankfully, a wide variety of gluten-free pastas exists to substitute for pastas made from wheat or flour. What if you’re doing a keto or low-carb diet? Well, that’s where my simply delicious baked cauliflower mac and cheese recipe comes in handy AND it’s only 5 INGREDIENTS!
