    CHRISSYG's Note:

    This is a really tasty, easy dish that my mom always made for us as dinner during lent (meatless meals). I don't know if it was created out of necessity because it was 'cheap' to make or if it was passed down in the family, but I still love it and love making and eating it. (it's also a good way to 'sneak' cauliflower into your kids diet)
