Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 12 people


  • 1 cup a2 Milk™
  • 2 cups whole grain pasta, dry
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • tsp garlic powder
  • tsp tumeric
  • tsp black pepper
  • tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups riced cauliflower
  • ½ cup Pecorino Romao cheese, divided
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat oil in the same pot, and sauté onions for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in flour and stir to completely coat the onion. Stir in spices and cook, stirring constantly, until spices are fragrant (about 1 minute).
  • Pour in about ¼ cup a2 Milk™. Stir well, scraping up any bits on the bottom of the pot, until thick. Add a little more milk, stir into sauce, and repeat two more times until you have a thick sauce.
  • Add in the pasta and cauliflower and stir to completely combine. Add in all but 2 tablespoons of cheese and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk the egg into a small bowl. Add a spoonful of the hot cauliflower-cheese mixture and stir. Add another spoonful of mixture and stir. Pour into the pot and stir to completely combine.
  • Transfer to muffin tins or liners. Sprinkle with remaining two tablespoons of cheese.
  • Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving and enjoy!
