Recipe Notes

*If the sauce is too liquid remove 1/2 cup of it and add 1/2 Tbsp of corn meal, whisk until dissolved and then pour it back into the sauce. It'll become thicker within seconds.

* You can substitute cauliflower for rice if you prefer. Use 1 cup of rice and cook it as per the package instructions
