Gray: This was from the section entitled “how to take vegetables and make them not healthy.”  Just kidding, but it definitely is rich and tastes fantastic. I think you could give broccoli or cauliflower a similar treatment and have a delicious dish. This is not a healthy eating or light option dish, but if you want a treat I say go for it. I had to substitute orange bell peppers for the green, so it was probably a touch sweeter, but other than that it was good, and very easy to make.  Enjoy!

Katie: This was tasty, but it is a very different flavor that other things I have eaten. It might be because when Gray said he wanted to make cabbage, this is NOT what I envisioned. All that being said, if you want a rich, cheesy cabbage dish, this is it!
