Shape Up Saturday: 21 Day Fix Approved Cauliflower Casserole


Ok, so just as an fyi I got this entire recipe from the Team Beach Body website here.  I’ve copied and pasted the recipe below for your convenience but just know that it’s not my recipe.  I altered mine a little bit adding less cheese but everything else is basically the same!
