    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    Add Italian sausage and serve with a salad of spring greens and garlic bread as a main course or as a fresh side dish to any other main course. Either way, it is a delicious, fresh summery dish. Note: Please do not use canned tomatoes in this dish and do not over cook the cauliflower. The canned tomatoes turns the cauliflower into a very unappetizing pink color.

      Karen this is just plain delicious! My hubby doesn't eat veggies, but I am very happy making this for myself! The flavors go so well together, and even the leftovers are delicious. I have lost 40 lbs. and while I usually pass on the pasta, this was just too good to pass up. Thank you so much for making simple ingredients go so well together. This is definatley a keeper!
