A very tasty recipe that is also good when re-heated. I have been making this recipe for many years.

Bill's done it again. Its a winner. When I looked at it after it was assembled I thought oh man, this probably won't be so good and I'll bet its bland too. WRONG and glad. It was pretty darn good. I used pork sausage as I never have lamb, frozen cauliflower, otherwise followed recipe. Thanks for allowing me to be wrong once again Bill!
