Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe
Just like clothing, food goes in and out of style. Right now, cauliflower is all the rage – it is used for everything from pizza crust to pancakes and dozens of dishes in between. It is, however, at its best when served as a vegetable. The following Oven Roasted Cauliflower is a favorite; it's quick and easy to assemble, and roasts in the oven while the cook is busy doing other things. Once the cauliflower is crisp-tender, it's sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and baked until the cheese is crisp and bubbly. Even though the recipe is designed to serve six people, one or two people will easily finish it without blinking an eye.
Even though cauliflower hasn't always been the most popular vegetable around, it may become a family favorite when it's prepared this way. There will definitely be no leftovers.
