This is an absolutely amazing cauliflower side dish! It can really pass for a main dish, it's very filling. No need to pre cook the cauliflower.

What a brilliant idea for comfort food. Be sure to use a good quality marinara sauce as it really comes through in the dish. Served mine with buttered garlic bread. Yum. Thanks, Kittencal. [Made for Name That Ingredient.]
