  You want to know the best part of this dish…..the sauce. Seriously, I would lap it up if I could. But since I’m civilized I opted to pour it over a bunch of roasted cauliflower. Do with it what you will, I won’t judge. #judgymcjudgerson

I forgot the fresh parsley for the pictures. Don’t be like me.  If you really wanted to take it to the next level, stick the pan into the oven (under broil) with lemon slices over the top and let it get nice and toasty!
