Zucchini & Cauliflower Cheese



We love Mac and cheese with cauliflower and when my garden started producing more zucchini then I was able to use I started trying to think of new ways to enjoy it. My husband no longer wants macaroni now he only wants zucchini!

I sometimes change up the cheeses depending on what I have on hand.
