    This is the same cauliflower recipe I grew up with and it's still my favorite. Thank you for posting Acerast :)

    i was really looking forward to trying this recipe but i'm sorry tol say that i didnt really care for this sauce. it was kind of bland & barely cheesy even though i put almost 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese in. the recipe makes a huge batch so if you're only cooking for 2-4 people you might want to cut the recipe in half.

    I really, really enjoyed this. I did add the cheddar. Instead of caulifower, used froz/cooked California mixed vegs.
