"A great way to perk up cauliflower! Serving it mashed makes it easy to add things. Next time, since our family likes thicker sauces. I might add flour to the butter and cream to make a roux to add the cheese to."

Delicious. easy & quick, we thought it was a great way to eat fresh cauliflower. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. i might add garlic to the next batch I make, it will be made again & again."

"I made this last night for my mother, who loves cauliflower. It was absolutely delicious. Thank goodness I had some left over, because she wanted it again tonight. I added a little milk tonight to moisten it up, because it had been in the refrigerator since last night. It really is easy and quick to make."

"I have mashed cauliflower before, but the addition of the Parmesan Cheese makes this recipe extra special. We loved it. As a volunteer field editor, I rate this recipe 5 stars, and I am going to tell all my friends about it, and how easy it is to make!"
