    Wonderful! Works best as a side dish, not main.

    My husband and I thought this recipe was great! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us, and used 16 oz. of leftover raw veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots) from a veggie tray, which I cooked. The cheese sauce was easy to prepare, and the flavor of the baked dish was outstanding. I can't wait to make this again!

    This is a dish I prepared for Thanksgiving last year and it was very popular with the guests.

    Delicious and easy. I accidentally bought frozen vegs in an Asian sauce, but I thought it was still very good.

    I've made this veggie dish for quite a few years now and we all love it. If there are any left overs they are great reheated in the microwave. Simple to make and pretty to look at.
