Sounds really good. Love the simplicity of it. I bet you could make it in individual ramekins as well.

This looks like such a wonderful comfort meal that probably looks just great at the table. I would be thrilled to be a guest and served this!! AND have dessert.

This sounds yummy! One of my favorite food stories is MKF Fisher's recounting of making cauliflower gratins in Dijon. She used lots of cheese!

I loved her version as well, tho I have only tasted it in my mind. It was during her early days in Dijon with her first husband.
