    Rogue Red's Note:

    This is a delicious low-carb alternative to cottage pie. I got the idea for the mashed cauliflower off an atkins discussion board.

      I couldn't get the cauliflower to soften in the microwave (after 17 minutes, some pieces were turning brown while some were still hard) so next time I'll steam it. Also, I added cheddar cheese over the top and upped the worchester sauce for more flavor. Pretty good, and even better as a left-over the next day!

      I really enjoyed this dish. Fairly easy and lots of flavour. Since I'm also concerned with fat as well, I used extra lean ground turkey, and threw in some mushrooms. For the spices I used, oregano, basil, Thyme. I also threw some red pepper flakes in the meat, made it a little spicy. I opted out of the butter. Lastly, I melted a little low fat cheese on top. It was fantastic.

      This was so good! Easy, filling & so healthy. I used lean ground turkey & frozen cauliflower-didn't use any nutmeg-I used oregano, minced onion & garlic, a little seasoning salt & black pepper. I also used fat free butter spread & sour cream-mixed some more onion & salt into the veggies! Tasted SO good with the zucchini! Thanks so much for sharing this.
