Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

I try and prepare a couple of vegetable side dishes with every meal. We enjoy the vegetables with dinner, and again the next day for lunch. Cauliflower is one vegetable that is always in season, is easy to prepare, and is inexpensive in price.

This easy recipes roasts the cauliflower after cutting it into slices. Once tender, grated Parmesan cheese and lemon zest are sprinkled on top. The cauliflower is then put back into the oven to allow the cheese to melt onto the florets.

Buon Appetito!
