This is truly one of our all time favorite recipes. There’s just something about it. It’s like a quick comfort food…if there could be such a thing.

This is a dish that I have been making for years. Our family has always enjoyed it, and with some very simple modifications, it is easily converted to a paleo-friendly version. I included the changes in the recipe below.

It is served with cooked rice. For the paleo version, you use riced cauliflower, which you can prepare any way you like. I prefer it roasted as that seems to give it the best texture. I generally start the “cauliflower rice” before I begin preparing this dish and by the time the dish is done, the riced cauliflower is already cooked and waiting for it’s companion.
