Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower 

We love cauliflower in our house and this is such an easy weeknight side dish.  It’s lightly browned, caramelized, and cheesy!

Toss the sliced cauliflower in butter.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Place in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (I was obviously a little heavy handed with my cheese measurements!).

Add the chopped parsley to the cauliflower and roast it in the oven again for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese melts and it forms a light brown crust.

Remove from the oven and serve it immediately.

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower; cut into florets
2 tablespoons melted butter
Pinch of salt
3 light dashes of ground black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chopped parsley leaves

Instructions:

Toss the sliced cauliflower with the butter. Season with salt and black pepper. Place the cauliflower in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Roast until almost tender about 20-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the grated Parmesan and chopped parsley leaves on top of the cauliflower.  Roast again until the cheese melts and slightly crusty, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

    haha, I ALWAYS overflow my cheese measurements… or sometimes I just forget about the measuring cup all together and dump the bag on there.
