I loved this! It was so good. If you think it doesn't have enough flavor, substitute the water with chicken broth and that should do the trick. That's how I did it and it was Delicious!

I made this for a family dinner. It was well received. The cheese enticed the children. I will make this again. I really liked the cheese sauce which could be used in many other recipes.

This recipe is the easiest way to get my children to eat their veggies. They love the cheese sauce.

Weeknights are so rushed, so I used the frozen vegetables, steamed; then used the sauce recipe. It was great!

This tasted just like my husband had remembered it when he ate it as a child. It was a big hit with my whole family. I did use the sharp cheddar cheese to give it a little more punch. I also added a little bit of garlic salt. It was incredibly easy to make, but it tasted like I really slaved over it in the kitchen!

This is a simple and easy recipe. We really enjoyed it. And the kids ate ALL their vegtables!!!

Wow, my family didn't waste any time cleaning up the bowl. It was a hit and they don't like brocolli/cauliflower or so they say!
