This recipe was truly delicious! I loved the mashed cauliflower and the 'meat' filling was savory and delicious. I can't wait to see how it tastes as a leftover! I will definitely be making this again, thanks!

Fabulous! So hearty and tasty. I put mashed potatoes instead of cauliflower on top because it had a weird grainy texture. Added some fresh rosemary to the mash - highly recommended addition.

We really enjoyed this recipe, more than we even thought we would. I used gimmelean that I cut into small chunks. I also used beef broth, since we are not vegetarians (we just eat a lot of meatless meals and meat subs). We thought this was hearty and tasty. Really great flavor. Thanks.
