Before starting, preheat your broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce.
Add 8 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While water comes to a boil, cut cauliflower florets into 1-inch pieces. Slice mushrooms. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Once boiling, add cauliflower to the pot and cook, until fork tender, 6-8 min. Drain cauliflower. Reduce heat to medium, then return pot to heat. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and swirl to melt. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 sec. Remove from heat, then add cauliflower, 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and season with salt and pepper. Mash until mostly smooth. Add half the Parmesan, then mash until combined.
While the cauliflower cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden and tender, 3-4 min. Add beef, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat, then return to heat.
Add 2 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning (dbl for 4 ppl), soy sauce and crushed tomatoes to the pan with beef. Bring to a gentle simmer, then reduce heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until ragout has thickened slightly and no longer watery, 5-7 min.
Transfer ragout to an 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch for 4 ppl), smoothing over top. Dollop with cauliflower mash, then evenly spread. Sprinkle remaining Italian Seasoning and remaining Parmesan over top. Broil in the top of the oven, until golden-brown, 2-3 min.
Divide the casserole between plates.
