SPICY SAUSAGE AND "RICE" CASSEROLE
15 ounces fresh cauliflower, shredded
1 pound pork sausage
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
10 ounce can Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained (diced tomatoes with green chiles)
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large casserole, cover and microwave the cauliflower with 2 tablespoons water about 4 minutes on HIGH. Stir and cook another 3-4 minutes until tender-crisp. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown the sausage; drain the fat. Stir the softened cream cheese into "rice" until well blended. Stir in tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the cheddar cheese and sausage. Microwave on MEDIUM for about 10-20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, bake at 350º for 20-30 minutes.

Definitely not gourmet food, but homey and satisfying. It's also pretty hot and spicy. If you don't care for hot food, you could substitute and equal amount of canned diced tomatoes.
