I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Baked Cauliflower Dinner

Pasta bake with no pasta? Yep, cauliflower is swapped in for a lighter fare that's still high on flavour!

8 cups cauliflower florets
2 tbsps olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb ground beef
3/4 cups diced onion
2 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp dry basil
2 1/2 cups tomato sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Toss the cauliflower with olive oil, salt and pepper and spread out on a lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until tender.

While that bakes brown the ground beef in a large skillet until no pink remains. Remove excess grease. Add onion and cook 2 minutes then add garlic, oregano and basil. Add the tomato sauce and simmer 10 minutes. Finally, add the cauliflower.
Mix the cottage cheese and egg together.

Now start layering in an oiled 9 X 13" baking dish... 1/2 the cauliflower/meat sauce, 1/2 the cottage cheese/egg, 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 the parmesan. Then repeat ending with parmesan.

Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

And serve with a light salad.

Serves 4-5
