    By The Lake's Note:

    I got this recipe from the "Shut up and Mangia" website. ZAAR is my favorite website to save all my recipes to. The author writes: "One of my old family recipes is this mostaccioli and cauliflower dish. My Grandmother made this dish for almost every occasion. It's different and delicious. I never ate ham when I was younger, so when I went to my grams house she alway made sure that I something other than the ham to eat. I'm the only one who still makes it. But, as soon as my cousins in California and New Mexico find out I have the recipe I'm sure they'll try to make it themselves. This combination can be made two ways. You could mix the ingredients to be very thick and creamy with no trace of cauliflower or you can mix it and leave larger pieces of cauliflower. Which ever way you decide to make it I can assure you it's a very filling dish. I make this recipe at least once every two weeks. The kids are just starting to enjoy it but I'm sure they will be making it for their children in the future."

      This is an excellent dish! I did use Penne Pasta. I used dry bread chunks and crushed them and minced jarred garlic. With the parmesan cheese I used some grated pepper jack. Next day: I took the leftovers and browned some hamburger,added mushrooms and stewed tomatoes and presto, another wonderful dish, so not only is this recipe great but also the start of another main dish meal. Thanks for posting

      This is verrry similarto the recipe my dad makes, that his dad made, and so forth. We're full-blown Italian, and this recipe just warms my heart. :) I tried this one, just to see the difference between yours and my family's, and there isn't much of one! It's just as delicious as the one I've grown up with, thanks for sharing. :)
