      I brought this dish to a friends house for dinner, because she has a veggie picky son and a veggie picky husband. I left out the hot sauce to make it more kid friendly. We were all happy with the result - very tasty!

      We loved this! The cheese sauce gives a nice zip to the veggies, especially the green chilies and pepper sauce. Love the fact that this can be made ahead of time too. Another great recipe, Shanna Bennett.
