This is amazing!! I made a couple changes though, didn’t add the (mixed herbs) just added bacon and about 3 or 4 slices of velveeta cheese slices and then to top it off I added cayenne powder to make it nice and spicy. Definitely keeping this recipe. Only wish it made more only made enough for two people. I’ll double up next time. Read More

I didn't care for it. It was very soupy. I ended up pureeing it adding some cooked crumbled bacon and made it edible but won't make again. Also I thought it was a bit salty. I didn't even put in the amount called for in the recipe but still salty. Read More

After seeing a similar recipe on a web site that drove me crazy with ads and the irrelevant history of anyone who'd ever touched a spatula popping up, I thought I'd return to my favorite recipe website. I did use this recipe, with a few changes. I didn't have "mixed herbs", I added bacon, some Velveeta and used a crushed pork rind topping. (Hey, the Velveeta needed to go SOMEWHERE!) I'd eat a lot more veggies if they were prepared like this! :) Read More

I made it, doubled it, and used regular pasta for my boyfriend and cauliflower for me. Super easy to make extra for those not following your eating plan too! Read More
