This is a great way to serve cauliflower. We loved the creamy cheesy sauce (I used cheddar) and the crunchy topping. A wonderful side dish that is easy to prepare. I'm so glad I found this. :-)

This is delicious! I made sure to use fresh shredded Parmesan, but also added a fresh Italian blend as well (Asiago, etc). I used a bit less swiss, and used baby swiss. Delicious cold or warm! I plan on making it again this weekend!

Was super easy and VERY good, was a real crowd pleaser. I followed the recipe but added a little more cheese and some bacon bits.
