This was pretty yummy but my husband and I agreed that it was a bit bland. I used my steamer for the cauliflower and broccoli beforehand. I also made only 1 strudel. I had some trouble getting the seam to close, but used a bit of water and that helped a little. The main issue here was the flour/milk "sauce"... it desperately needed some seasoning. Next time I'm definitely adding in at least some salt and pepper. I think with that added in, that could make this a 5-star meal.

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.
