Skillet Mac and Cheese

['2 cups 1-inch-wide cauliflower florets', '1 1/4 cups Light-and-Crisp Whole-Wheat Bread Crumbs', '3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese', '2 teaspoons olive oil', '3 cups cold low-fat (1%) milk', '3 tablespoons all-purpose flour', '1 1/4 cups shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese (5 ounces)', '1/4 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (1 ounce)', '2 teaspoons mustard powder', '3/4 teaspoon paprika', '1/2 teaspoon salt', '1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper', '1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper', '6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) wholegrain elbow macaroni, cooked for 3 minutes less than the package directions (about 3 cups cooked)', 'Nonstick cooking spray']

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the cauliflower into a steamer basket fitted over the pot, cover, and steam until just tender, about 5 minutes. Finely chop the steamed cauliflower.
In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and oil.
In a large saucepan, whisk together the milk and flour until the flour is dissolved. Whisking constantly, bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the mixture thickens slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the cheddar, Gruyère, mustard powder, paprika, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Whisk until the cheeses are melted and the mixture is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chopped cauliflower and macaroni and stir until well coated.
Spray an ovenproof 10-inch high-sided skillet with cooking spray. Pour the mixture into the prepared skillet. Sprinkle with the bread crumb mixture, place on a baking sheet, and bake until the top is browned and the cheese is bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes.
