Very attractive on the table at Christmas time and the flavours are wonderful. This also came from the 1973 Good Housekeeping cookbook.

I have been looking for some other way to cook cauliflower besides just steaming it or using cheese . This was a great recipe. I too steamed the cauliflower and I also added mushrooms to the onion and garlic, after the onions had cooked a bit. I didn't seed the tomatoe either. Everyone in the family liked it, including my teenage daughter!

This was so simple I did not expect a lot, but it was great. Very good taste. I used one tomatoe did not take the seeds out. and steamed the Cauliflour.
