Italian Cauliflower Cheese Sticks Recipe

Cauliflower is the new black.

Thanks to Pinterest, cauliflower has gone from the bottom to the top of most grocery lists.

One of my all-time favorite cheeses though, is Gorgonzola. I could seriously eat Gorgonzola with a spoon, every single day. I hear that’s frowned upon though, so I’ve resorted to sneaking it into some foods.
