Ingredients

  • 3

    cups cooked chicken, chopped

  • 3-4

    cups cooked and salted broccoli

  • 2

    cups finely shredded mozzarella

  • 1

    box jumbo shells, cooked according to package direction

  • Sauce:

  • 8

    large cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 5-6

    cups cauliflower florets

  • 6-7

    cups vegetable broth or water

  • 1

    teaspoon salt (more to taste)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pepper (more to taste)

  • 1/2

    cup milk (more to taste)

Directions

Mix the chicken, broccoli and mozzarella together in a bowl. Fill the shells with the mixture. I used half of the shells and froze the other half. Half of the shells filled a 9×13 casserole dish. Spread a small amount of the sauce on the bottom of the pan. Lay the shells in the dish in a single layer. Pour the sauce over the top Cauliflower Sauce: Garlic: Saute the minced garlic with the butter in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Cook for several minutes or until the garlic is soft and fragrant but not browned (browned or burnt garlic will taste bitter). Remove from heat and set aside. Cauliflower: Bring the water or vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 7-10 minutes or until cauliflower is fork tender. Do not drain. Puree: Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1 cup vegetable broth or cooking liquid, sauteed garlic/butter, salt, pepper, and milk. Blend or puree for several minutes until the sauce is very smooth, adding more broth or milk depending on how thick you want the sauce. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender. Serve hot! If the sauce starts to look dry, add a few drops of water, milk, or olive oil.
