@geekygrandma - i will put money on it that she used that dry shaker parm that you get in the pasta section of your grocery store. you have to use the real deal and grate it yourself that dried stuff is no good for melting and it is way to salty thats why i never use it. but i loved this and cant wait to use it at thanksgiving this year :)

This recipe absolutely stole the show for Thanksgiving. It was amazing. I have NO idea why geekygrandma's recipe turned out so horrible because ours was per-fection. And it was ridiculously easy to make. I loved it so much I'm making it again for Christmas!! I give it above and beyond 5 stars!

So yummy! The kiddos love it, as did the adults. I doubled the recipe and added a package of white 4 cheese mix most people use to make pasta with (find in the gravy/dry mix section of store) just to give it a thicker texture and a more cheesey flavor. My father in law even asked for the recipe. Also great way to get your children to eat some veggies .

This was downright awful - what a waste of perfectly good cauliflower. It was way too salty, too watery and just not good. Parmesan cheese is definitely not the type of cheese to use in this type of dish - it's way too salty and doesn't melt properly to make a nice sauce - after all the years I've been cooking you'd think I would have figured that out by now. This was nothing but a waste of noney. Doesn't anyone at the MS test kitchen try these recipies out before posting them???

omg - there is a typo in the header...."pork shops" it's evil but it makes me happy to know that even a stellar website like this one can make a mistake. Just helps me sleep better
