CHEESY CAULIFLOWER CASSEROLE

Hello Lovely,

It's Friday! This week has been a little up and down with meals because my step-dad who primarily cooks hasn't been feeling well. So all week long, I've been making a list of ingredients to buy and recipes to try. Yesterday I got this recipe in my email, and it was so simple I had to try it! You probably already have these ingredients lying around the fridge and pantry. A huge thank you to Yummy Healthy Easy for sharing this recipe!
