Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Blanch the cauliflower for 2 minutes. Transfer the cauliflower to a buttered 9 by 13-inch baking dish and let cool, about 5 minutes.

In a small skillet over medium-high heat, brown the pancetta. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the flour and stir until combined. Continue stirring for 2 minutes to cook the flour. Slowly add the milk, stirring continuously until the milk has incorporated and there are no lumps. Add the garlic clove and red pepper flakes and stir the sauce over low heat until the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Add the Parmesan, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and the reserved pancetta. Stir to combine. Pour the sauce over the cauliflower to cover. Top with a sprinkling of bread crumbs.

Bake until the breadcrumbs are golden and the cauliflower is cooked, about 25 minutes. Serve immediately.

    This recipe is awesome. Tastes like my mac-n-cheese with a kick from the red pepper flakes.

    This was VERY good! Like someone else said, this is their new mac and cheese. This is really a savory dish! Next time I will only add 1/2 t of the red pepper flakes. A bit too spicy for the little ones. Mmmmm again is all I can say! A&A Deppen.

    This is so good and easy to make. I made this for Christmas and it went over BIG. Some said it needed a touch more salt but I found it perfect. My husband LOVED it and he isn't one to like cooked califlower unless it is tender crisp and covered in cheese. Definately try this recipe.
