    What about using pieces of blanched green beans instead of pasta? Or better yet, yellow wax beans? When they are cut into lengths I've always thought that it looks a little like macaroni.

      My DH makes two neolithic-based dishes that are absolutely, devinely delish. I can live without them, but I'd rather not...we have them once or twice a year. One is (Alton Brown's) Mac and Cheese. For me, mac and cheese is about the texture of the noodles and flavor/texture of the sauce. You can't take the cheese, put it on a veggie and have it be a substitute. You may create a dish that's good in it's own right, but it's not mac and cheese. We probably have that once a year. The other is Cincinnati chili, which is traditionally served over white spaghetti noodles. We have this about 3 times a year and I usually put mine over rice pasta noodles. It's still grain based, but at least its gluten free. though, the last time we had it I just had regular pasta and somehow survived. A rare treat, I don't fret over (as long as there aren't lots of rare treats every week!)

      these complaints do seem silly when you put them in perspective, don't they.

        Try Dreamfields pasta

        I make mac and cheese with Dreamfields elbow pasta, using their recipe (used to be on the box, but check their web site for it). The taste is great, even my non-primal eating husband likes it. Just eat smallish portions and eat some protein with it to not have your blood sugar rise after eating.

          Srsly. My kids love it. I fed it to my girlfriend who HATES cauliflower and she loved it. I usually do not do substitute types of food, but every once in a while you need comfort foods and this delivers all the good stuff with none of the bad. (And after a while you don't need or want the subs as much but it can be good as a bridge from the old ways...)

            Have you thought about spaghetti squash?

            I was HUGE pasta hound, but once I tried spaghetti squash I was immediately hooked. The flavor is similar to pasta, but it's got a nice crunch to it. I absolutely love it.

              I know this thread is really old, but I just made this recipe today for a grill-out party I'm going to. We are have having freshly made primal polish sausage and I was looking for a comfort-food side dish to serve with the sausages.

              I used fresh cauliflower, not frozen, made the sauce on the stove top, added a little tapioca starch to thicken, and added a little parmesan cheese. I topped it at the end with extra chopped scallions and chives.

              So very delicious!! I highly recommend it for the occasional comfort food side dish

                Anything with cheese makes me happy and now this link has reminded me that I love cauliflower cheese, put it all under the grill until crusty on top. Serious amounts of yum!

                  Cauliflower mac and cheese

                  Hubby LOVES LOVES LOVE this. Its his primal comfort food. I like it if I "burn" the top a little so there is a crunchy crust. I don't bother with the mustard-its great without it. However, if you don't do dairy then this recipe won't work.
