Reviews for Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole
"Delicious...it was so good that my husband and I ate two full servings each...I used cornstarch instead of flour, almond milk and added some sauteed red pepper and onion for added flavor...a keeper!!! Thanks."
"I really like this recipe. I used milk & used 1 cup shredded cheese since I did not have the parmesan. I used crackers crumbs instead of bread for the topping. It came together easily. I will make it again."
"Even though I used real cheese instead of low fat. And whole milk, and a little extra seasoning, we found this very bland. We ate what was on our plates, and the leftovers went to the pigs."
