Very good! I did not use parmesan cheese, just colby and cheddar. I also used 2% milk. Thanks!

I always like to find different ways to make cauliflower, so I was glad to see this recipe. The pimientos really do look pretty and jazz up the taste, too. I think I used closer to 1 cup of cheddar. I also replaced the dried onion flakes with about 1 tbsp fresh minced onion. This would present very nicely in a red serving bowl on a Christmas dinner table. Thanx for posting this; it's a keeper!
