Everyone loves this recipe and there are NEVER leftovers! It's adapted from a dish I order at a nearby restaurant... the chef wouldn't share the recipe so I developed my own.

Cauliflower is having its moment as a popular veggie and this oven roasted cauliflower is delicious. Bread crumbs coat the cauliflower and, once roasted, the florets have toasty, crispy edges. Parmesan cheese adds a bit of savory to the side dish. Filled with wonderful Italian flavor, this recipe will convert everyone to a cauliflower fan.
