Pasta with Cauliflower, Bacon, and Bread Crumbs

This was a great dish with all of us. It is simple, and full of favorites: pasta, cauliflower, and bacon. The way the bacon is cooked with the bread crumbs makes for a crunchy, tasty topping. We ate it with the topping initially but still had some pasta left without the topping. I didn’t mind using it up because it was easy to make more and helped leftovers feel fresh again.

Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve made and shared recipes for Mac and Cheese before, as well as just lots of cheesy pasta dishes. It’s something we are a fan of here. When I last shared this recipe, I didn’t include it because I wanted to try it again with more pasta since it made too much sauce (in my opinion).
