I made a double batch of sauce and mixed one with just the broccoli and carrots and one with broccoli and cauliflower. Both were great, I did end up doubling the cheese on the broccoli and cauliflower - I think the combo of the Broccoli and Cauliflower overpowered the cheese.

DH and I loved this! So, so good and easy. I diced up some roasted red pepper and carmelized onions that I had in the refrigerator and made the sauce with reduced-fat cream cheese. Creamy and wonderful!

Delicious! The family really enjoyed this. DD loved it and suggested I increase the sauce and toss it with pasta (maybe next time - but I liked it as is). I used reduced fat cream cheese and it still stirred up smooth and creamy. Thanks Sue Lau.
