MY REVIEW

Very good, and perfect. I think I got more flavor from using buttermilk instead of real milk, and only having parmesan and cheddar, rather than mozzarella cheese. but perfect. Didn't really think it needed extra seasoning.

Love this recipe....it's such a cool way to serve vegetables! It was a bit bland so i added salt, pepper, onion powder and nature's seasoning and some more cheddar cheese. Beautiful!
