    Easy and so yummy! I made it for last minute dinner guests tonight and everyone raved about it!

    Served this as part of my New Year's Eve feast, most said it was good, one complaint was that there is too much sauce(like the other reviewer). Flavor was good though.

    This was a nice change from other cauliflower recipes. I improvised a bit, skipped the breadcrumbs, used lots of cheddar cheese on top since I didn't have parmesan. I thought there was too much sauce for the vegetables so I'll probably cut that down (and the amount of butter) next time around. I added garlic powder as well, but the dish was still lacking something for me. Some cheese in the actual sauce would be a great idea. Thanks!

    I found this to be very bland. I thought the amount of effort was excessive for the results.
