I have to agree that the instructions were a bit vague. I followed Bergy's suggestions, only using one egg. I cut the cauliflowerettes into small, bite-size pieces. I really liked this casserole, but for some reason, the chili peppers seemed out of place. Maybe next time I will omit the chili peppers and add some garlic, which I think would add a wonderful touch to this dish. Thanks for posting!! ~Manda

This is a very good casseroke. The nice thing is that you can get it ready in the AM and pop it in the oven 45 minutes before serving, The instructions were a bit vague, what size should the cauliflower forets be? I chopped them and it worked well, When do you put in the cauliflower? Well to me it was obvious to add it with the sauted veggies. Next time I would use only 1 egg. Thankyou the casserole was enjoyed by all and good luck in our contest

I am in agreement with the previous reviewers that the instructions on the cauliflower were vague. I think that I would just blanche the cauliflower because it is going to be baked for 40 minutes and omit one of the eggs. I would also add garlic, dill and fresh Parm. cheese to this recipe. I will combine the dill and fresh Parm. with the egg when I add it to the dish. Thank you for sharing your recipe and good luck with your recipe.
