Very good and verrry easy. Adapted from the Microwaving America cookbook. Don't laugh at the looks, we call it "the brain".

This is a great way to serve an underrated veggie. I microwaved the cauliflower, then put the topping on it and finished it in the over. I like my cheese a little golden. Very tasty!
