NOTES : In this winter vegetable dish, the pumpkin or squash almost disintegrates to make a rich sauce for the more substantial cauliflower.
Originally, saffron would have been used, instead of turmeric, to give the dish extra colour and flavour. Saffron is still grown in parts of Italy, mainly in Abruzzo.
