I got this recipe from Food Network website and changed it a little bit to my taste. It's great tasting and easy to make. Great comfort food on a rainy, cold day. You can use cauliflower as well. Hope you enjoy!

Good recipe! Filled all the spaces in my DH's stomach and then some! I did boost up the flavor a bit by adding some cayenne (as another reviewer) and some milk too, to sooth out the edges. This is a good recipe that I will make again! Thanks for posting!

This was a great recipe. Basic and healthy. I think perhaps I will add just the teensiest bit of milk next time to give it that creamier texture. I found it fluffy more than creamy... We just added frozen broccoli w/out the cheese sauce - was great all the same. I'm definietely keeping this one. Thanks!
