Absolutely a delicious mixture of veggies! Because it is just after heavy eating Christmas I did cut back a bit on the recipe ingredients. Instead of Bechamel sauce I used lite onion dressing for the sauce, easy on the potato cauliflower mix and I cut back on the cheese - just used parmesan. Supply & demand made me use green beans instead of yellow wax beans. This is a recipe I will make agqin and again.
