Reviews for Cheddar Basil Cauliflower
"Delicious side dish! I used the white wine and the dried basil with an orange cauliflower. I would make this recipe again."
"I didn't care for this. I did end up adding more water because the cauliflower was beginning to scotch. I did not use wine or fresh basil so that May have been a factor."
"This is the best way to eat fresh cauliflower! It was so yummy! This dish was finished before the main dishes at dinner tonight."
