Stepmomster's Ham and Cauliflower CasseroleSubmitted by: STEPMOMSTER
at least 6 cups cauliflower flowerets, cut fairly small (1 large head cauliflower or 1 1/2 small heads)
1/2 tsp. salt (for water to cook cauliflower)
2 cups diced lean ham (use ham with less than 10% fat)
4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
2 T finely-grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
fresh ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup grated low-fat cheese (I used Four Cheese Mexican Blend)
While cauliflower is cooking, cut the ham into very small cubes, trimming any visible fat, and slice green onions. Put cream cheese into a glass dish or measuring cup and soften it in the microwave for a few minutes. (Or you can soften it on top of the pre-heating oven if you don't have a microwave.) When cream cheese is soft stir in the Greek yogurt, Parmesan, and sliced green onions.
When cauliflower is cooked enough to start to soften, pour into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well (at least 5 minutes.) Put the drained cauliflower back into the pot you cooked it in and mash with a potato masher until it's partly mashed but still has quite a few chunks left. Stir in the sauce mixture and combine well with the cauliflower; then gently mix in the diced ham. Season to taste with fresh-ground black pepper. (I didn't use salt because the ham and the Parmesan are both salty.)
Spray glass or crockery casserole dish with non-stick spray or olive oil. (I used a round dish that was 8 inches across, with fairly high sides.) Pour cauliflower mixture into the dish, spread out evenly, and sprinkle with the low-fat cheese.
Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned and all the mixture is hot throughout and starting to bubble. Let sit 10 minutes for any liquid to be absorbed, then serve hot.
