Savory Cauliflower Pie Recipe
Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a meatless main dish or a hearty side to take to a church potluck or family gathering, this pie is the perfect choice. It's a favorite with my husband and our 14-year-old son, Brett, and daughter Holly, 10. -Debbie Hart, Ft. Wayne, Indiana
