My brother and I used to give my mom a hard time with cauliflower, so my mom began experimenting with different recipes to find one that we would actually eat. One recipe was finally a winner among her countless inventions, and today, I’d like to share it with you. The cauliflower is tender and crunchy, covered in a delicious sauce and tons of melted cheese. What kid doesn’t like cheese? It’s an irresistible combination! Serve with meats or soups, or for lunch with a slice or two of garlic bread. MORE + LESS -
