Cauliflower Baked in Queso Sauce

Pat Duran


This recipe was inspired by Casssie..I had some mini bell peppers and a cauliflower in the refrigerator so I used them to make this delicious casserole. My family loved it even Bob who hates most cooked vegetables...thanks Cassie for your inspiration...
