creamsauce.Notes: Nata La Lechera can be found in spanish supermarkets
with thebaking goods. It is not stored refrigerated and resembles
condensed milkwithout the sugar. If unavaliable heavy cream could be
substituted orfor those worried about calories or fat use regular or 2
percent milk.This dish is pretty wholesome even with the cream. Egg
substitute can beused for the eggs to reduce cholesterol. Also the
original recipe calledfor cauliflower we used broccoli because it is
what we had in the house.We also added a layer of zucchini to the dish
so use the vegetablecombination that sounds best to you. Posted to
