I have made this a couple of times now - I really like it but I prefer to make it & leave it overnight as it seems to 'set' more overnight & tastes better the day after

oo okay, thanks.. good tip. i always think things like lasgne and bakes taste better after all the ingrediants have had time to really absorb and it tastes so much better the day after!

Do you chill it in the fridge over night or leave it at room temp covered up? xxx

I normally chill it overnight. I am planning on making the syn free Cannelloni on Tuesday night for tea on Wednesday, not sure if you have tried it but it is meant to be really good.

Did anyone see Jamie Oliver's 30 minute meals where he made that cauliflower macaroni cheese bake? I made it slimming world style the other day and it was delish. all you need to do is

boil the cauliflower including some of the leaves (never done that before but actually the leaves were one of the best things!) - save some of the water.
boil the macaroni.
mix the leftover cauliflower water with your HEXA cheese (i used half mozzarella)
make breadcrumbs out of your HEXB bread
Mix the cheesy cauliflower sauce with the macaroni
sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and bake in the oven

YUM!
