Light Cheesy Cauliflower

One of my favorite vegetables is cauliflower.  I just love it and feel like I don't eat it near enough.

Thing is, my favorite way of eating it is with a cheese sauce which can be quite a killer on the calories, so with that in mind, I tweaked my usual recipe to make it lighter.

This one comes out to about 173 calories per serving and it serves 4 people.  If you make 6 servings out of it, like we do, then it's only about 115 calories.
