This is my GO-TO recipe whenever I cook for friends because it's one of those recipes that everyone likes no matter how much of a picky eater they are. I've been making it for years & it is still one of my favorites.

I started making this before the "cauliflower everything" trend began so it really is a classic. If you are not located next to a Trader Joes you can use regular potato gnocchi if you prefer.

The combination of textures and flavors in this dish really make it stand out. It is the ultimate comfort food without being overkill on fatty ingredients. Enjoy!
