"This is really good, even tho I changed it a bit. Mine was very cheesy tasting. I used an 8oz block of sharp cheddar cheese in place of the cheese and sauce. I used 1/4 cup cornstarch in place of the flour to make it gluten-free. Next time I'll use less, maybe 2 to 3 Tbsp. I would recommend a non-stick pan. I had to stir continuously to prevent it from burning on the bottom while trying to bring it to a boil. I think this would be really good with all broccoli, as well."
