You can get this ready in the morning and then finish it 30 minutes before dinner. I like to put in some frozen peas too for color Just put them in frozen before adding the sauce. Nice way to use up some of the left over ham

I really enjoyed this fast, easy one dish meal! However, it came out a little watery. I think it was from the mushrooms. But that's okay because it tasted great! I used soy milk, fat free sour cream, and mozzarella because I didn't have cheddar. Very tasty.
Made exactly as stated, omitting the mushrooms and adding slightly more cheese. Delicious!
This was good and I will probably make it again with a couple of changes. There was too much cauliflower and not enough ham. I would make it 50/50 or more ham than cauliflower. I would also add some color as it looks a little bland, maybe some brocolli, green/red pepper, etc. I also used canned mushrooms so did not have the watery problem, although they did not seem to add much flavor. I was out of sour cream and substituted mayo. All in all we enjoyed it.
