Meatballs, Gravy and Cauliflower

Who would have thunk it?  Meatballs, gravy and mashed cauliflower ~ no need for potatoes ~ you can have your comfort food and keep your girlish figure! The meatballs are very similar to our Italian Style Meatballs and the Chicken Meatballs, the real difference here is the gravy! Instead of using a classic Italian style gravy, we opted for a classic meat gravy to go with our pureed cauliflower – faux-toes!
