Cheryl's notes for this recipe:
The perfect low carb pot luck dish. No one will miss the rice that is typically in the broccoli cheese casseroles.
Add chicken or ground beef and you have a fantastic main dish!

This would be good with frozen cauliflower. Cauliflower has far fewer carbs. I make a cauliflower Mac n Cheese thats very similar to your recipe.With frozen cauliflower, I steam it , drain and pour onto a clean towel,pat dry and let set to get rid of as much moisture as possible. Great idea about adding chicken/

Yes, I have used cauliflower and I have used the cauliflower and broccoli mix. My husband is not big on cauliflower. But the rest of us love it. I made the cauliflower with garlic and cream and make sort of like mashed potatoes. MMMMMM!
