READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by JennyMidget

Something I threw together as a side-dish: I love cheesy veggies but didn't want that stodgy white-cheese-sauce kind of feeling weighing me down. This was pronounced delicious by the whole family!

Yummy. I made a half amount last night and used frozen corn (not going to get fresh around her at this time of year) and plain flake salt. In my case I needed a little more water and I thought that it wouldn't hurt to use half water and half milk. It made a welcome change from the usual sides and went very nicely with the chicken.
