"I had a half a pound of smoked sausage and didn't want to just fry and serve it up. I did a bit of " Freezer Diving " ;) and found a bag of cauliflower. So, I combined that with the smoked sausage, a few extras, and a cheese sauce and this is what I came up with. :)If you wanted to, you can cook about 1/8th. to 1/4th cup of finely chopped onion with the sausage. And to make this a One- Dish meal, just add some frozen peas. I want to thank Molly53 and Chicagoland du Jour( Chefs from ZAAR,a now defunct site), for coming up with the name for this recipe.I know that this looks complicated, but it's really easy to make.Submitted to " ZAZZ " on August 27th.,2012"
