    Jan in Lanark's Note:

    An old standby for me. I like the fact that it can be made earlier in the day and finished off before dinner. Once again, based on an old Canadian Living recipe. Vary the vegetables if you like.

      Creamy and delicious. I may try to use a sharper cheese next time for more "tang," but otherwise it was a crowd pleaser all around. Will definitely make again.

      This is fantastic. I added broccoli in addition to the cauliflower and carrots. Will be serving this at Thanksgiving.
