Step 1
  • Preheat the oven to 170°C degrees.
Step 2
  • In a small roasting tin, simmer spices in melted butter for 2 minutes. Toss in cauliflower to coat with mixture. Roast for 15 min.
Step 3
  • Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta until al dente. Pour into a colander and drain thoroughly.
Step 4
  • Meanwhile in a heavy bottomed pan melt butter and add flour stirring into a paste with a wooden spoon. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until it turns golden in colour. Slowly whisk milk and cream into butter mixture and cook for another 5 – 8 minutes until the sauce coats the back of the wooden spoon.
Step 5
  • Pre heat the grill to 200°C.
Step 6
  • Over a low heat add the cheese, cream cheese and mustard. Mix until melted, stirring occasionally to stop it sticking. Fold in cooked pasta followed by the cauliflower.
Step 7
  • Transfer to an oven proof baking dish, sprinkle with the grated cheese and place under grill until golden brown.
