"Yummy cheesy and very versatile, can add in tuna, cooked chicken, cooked penne pasta... whatever floats your boat, I had some extra pork breakfast sausage in my freezer so I added them. Broccoli also works instead of the cauliflower. Make sure to only steam the cauliflower in microwave using no water, if you boil it the sauce will be watery"
