Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower and Peas

This was super delicious.  I love macaroni and cheese!  And if you add peas and cauliflower that makes it healthy, right?  I can dream.

Winnie, the person who made this dish, said she would double the cheese and add some basil or other herbs to fill out the flavor.  I definitely agree about the herbs.  We will have to experiment!
