A different twist on cauliflower cheese and one of my favorites. I have successfully cooked this in the micorwave which really cuts down on the cooking time.

  2. Bring to the boil and cook for 12-15 minutes , or until flowerets are very tender.
  3. Drain and set aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to moderate 180C degrees (350F degrees).
