    Thank you!! My Mom always made this for special occasions. I am making a recipe box for my son and lost Mom's recipe....I always just do it from my head. Needed the specific measurements. I am so glad you posted this!

    Delicious! I love that it's a homemade cheese sauce. Plus it's not hard to do. The topping is outstanding-we loved it(my kids do like cauliflower anyway so it was really easy to get them to eat this.) I will definitely make this again. Thanks Marie!

    Nice enough but rather bland for my taste. I'd make sure to use sharp cheddar if I made this again and maybe a shot or two of hot sauce. Again, pleasant but not a standout.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. I made it exactly as written, but did think it needed just a little more salt added in. That's the only change I'll make next time I prepare this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    This was quite good. When I looked at the small amount of space my large head of cauliflower took up in the 8x8 dish, I decided to cut the sauce in 1/2. I considered it a large head, but that's not Marie's fault... I also took a liberty and used more cheddar cheese on top, rather than parmesan, as that is what the children prefer. Thanks Marie, it was simple and easy to prepare.
