    This was delicious. We love any vegetable in cheese sauce recipes. Have had to make this several times this summer.

    I’ve just made this and it is absolutely delicious! I added in a layer of thinly sliced raw potatoes and the whole thing baked perfectly in the time given. Just the right amount of herby sauce, too.
