The secret ingredient in this stovetop mac and cheese is the cauliflower that's pureed in the cheese sauce. It thickens without a butter-flour roux and adds fiber to the dish. Also, 2 percent milk, reduced-fat white cheddar and neufchatel cheeses help lighten this classic. Garlic, ground mustard, thyme and black pepper give the dish a savory finish.
