    but, if you want to figure it out you should probably try each recipe individually, in a smaller amount. it could be neither of them, or you could figure out how evil cauliflower is.
    Roast your fresh cauliflower florets into submission in a 400 degree F oven. It comes out all tame and sweet...

      I have no answers for you but want to thank you for giving me the best belly-laugh I've had all day. Your description was funny as hell.

      You sure it was the veggies? Because the only time I've gotten sick like that it was either food poisoning or the stomach flu.

        cauliflower is a brassica and has goitrogens and messes with your thyroid ( eat moah iodine... oh no i didnt,,,,, oh yes i did LOL ). We are team spaghetti squash in these parts.


        but we are also team butter, and gellatin, and coconut oil, so we probably dont count.

          A kindred soul! I just prepared the same thing this week..all of the joy of Italian without any of the heavy feeling.

            I wasn't able to test out the squash theory last night - when I got home, my room mate had dinner waiting on the stove! Some sort of .... thing.... she had concocted out of ground beef, diced tomatoes, and a bit of every vegetable and spice we had in the house. It was lovely, warming, and probably impossible to ever reproduce. I'm calling it goulash, because it looked and tasted like what I think goulash would look and taste like - though I have to admit, I have no idea what goulash is actually made with.

            But I'll try out the squash tonight - there's a greater chance of a late Mayan apocalypse than of my roomie cooking two nights in a row.

            Purple Leather Couch, I would love to see that recipe, too!

              I would trust cauliflower with my life.

              Spaghetti squash...it's got an attitude.

                I get along with both cauliflower and spaghetti squash.

                Broccoli, on the other hand, talks smack about my mama and is unwelcome in my home.

                  for talking badly about broccoli, you must be punished...

                  ...you must go to youtube, find a popular video, and respond to all the comments with mispellings, profanity, or sexual content with "broccoli is king"

                      Reporting in!

                      I made spaghetti squash with meat/tomato sauce Friday night, and ate the leftovers Saturday night. No ill effects whatsoever, thank goodness - I love it, and it's cheap, so I plan to make spaghetti squash kind of a staple. \o/

                      Next I'll try the cauliflower and see how it goes - though I did see there's another anti-cauliflower thread today, so I'm more nervous about that one!

                        Made this tonight for dinner. Was perfect as I had some spaghetti squash and cauliflower hanging out in the fridge. Even my 14 year old liked it despite an initial protest over squash (and a rebuke bout how I should know she hates squash....). Served it with a baked chicken breast. NO leftovers. I used two slices of applewood smoked bacon diced up instead of the prosciutto (drained most of the fat off) and added about two tablespoons of cream at the end. Sort of made an eggless, pasta free carbonara.

                          Years ago I owned a restaurant with a hungarian couple. They used to make real hungarian goulash and it was divine. Your post made me laugh cause when i was a kid, every time my mom had fridge clean out, it all went in one pot and was deemed goulash. For years that's all I thought goulash was. To this day, every leftover stew I toss in a slow cooker becomes goulash.

                              Are we siblings? Because this is what my mom did every weekend when I was a kid, and I swear I thought goulash was just "leftovers stew" until I was in college and actually went to Hungary.
