READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Bergy

Lovely tasty easy meatless meal. Use any soft cheese you wish but use something with herbs, garlic or jalapenos. Sub broccoli & cheddar for the cauliflower & soft cheese -- Use your imagination - I like a green salad with this dish Enjoy

I have a hard time giving low ratings, but Bergy, you have convinced me that I need to be honest and constructive so here goes.The recipe turned out bland, but I think it's because I just used plain cream cheese. I would like to try this again, using the Rondele cream cheese with garlic and chives and use cauliflower instead of broccoli. Whew. Thanks Bergy.
