Cheesy cauliflower and bell peppers

This recipe came from yesterday.  We had it with some grilled chicken, but the dish on its own was really filling. too.  The veggies were cheesy good.  And I like that the prep can all be done in 1 pot.

1 cauliflower, broken into flowerettes
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbl cornstarch
1 1/2 c milk
4 Tbl butter, divided
1 tsp salt
1 cup shredded white cheddar (I used the sharp cheddar I had in the fridge)
1/4 cup cracker crumbs

Drop cauliflower into boiling, salted water.  Cook 5 minutes.  Drain.  Arrange in a greased casserole dish.

In the same pot melt 1 Tbl butter.  Add peppers and garlic and cook 2 minutes.  Arrange over cauliflower.

In the same pot melt 2 Tbl butter.  Stir cornstarch into milk and pour into butter.  Cook, stirring often, until thickened.  Add salt, pepper and cheese and cook until cheese is melted.  Pour over veggies.

Mix cracker crumbs and 1 Tbl melted butter, and sprinkle on top of veggies.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Or cover and refrigerate and later bake for 35 minutes.
