Rachael Ray's Cheesy "smashed" Cauliflower

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by hottiecj

Posting this here for safe keeping. I don't normally use Rachael Ray recipes 'cause she mixes sweet and savory flavors a lot and I find that kinda gross. ;) But this one sounded pretty good. I think I'll leave out the nutmeg, tho. If you try it let me know how it turns out. :)

I just tried the mashed cauliflower and it was very good. I did add some cream cheese since I did not have the other cheese but turned out well with add'l herbs. well done
