  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until beginning to soften but not brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook another minute. Add the cauliflower; salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir another minute to combine.
  2. Stir in the sauce and white wine; add 1 tablespoon of the parsley. Cook and stir 5 minutes at a low simmer.
  3. Turn heat to medium-low, cover. Cook until cauliflower is almost tender, about 10 more minutes, stirring a few times.
  4. Turn broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Pour cauliflower and tomato sauce onto the baking sheet. Gently scoop some of the tomato sauce back over the top of the cauliflower. Spread the cauliflower evenly on the sheet.
  6. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese then mozzarella cheese over the cauliflower.
  7. Broil until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned in spots, about 2 minutes. Watch carefully so cheese doesn't burn. Let rest 3 minutes before transferring to serving platter. Garnish with remaining fresh parsley.

This is a really nice light tasting dish that just feels fresh when you are eating it. I can't explain that, it just does. I can definitely see me making this again. Thank you BW!

This was great! A new way to cook cauliflower is always appreciated. I followed recipe except I used an Italian blend of cheese. Can't wait to share with my low carb eating friends.

This made for an easy, fresh, and flavorful dinner! I simmered the cauliflower in the sauce about 20 minutes. I decided not to broil the cheese this time because it smelled so delicious I couldn't wait any longer. I highly recommend this recipe!

This is a quick and easy side dish I came up with to utilize a jar of tomato sauce and not wanting pasta. Its great for those on a low-carb diet or can be eaten with a main dish. I tried to keep it simple and the flavors fresh. I hope you enjoy!
