This recipe was good. The parm cheese addition at the end is important as it adds alot of flavor. Also, either my oven wasn't working properly, or it needed more time to cook. I expected it to be a little softer. I only used about 1/2 the salt, as it seemed like too much for my taste.

Not a fan of this , cauliflower texture was too rough for me. I'd rather boil and mash it to make a great mashed potatoe substitute.

Definitely enjoyed this, a nice way to serve cauliflower without drenching it in cheese sauce. It did take longer to cook than the recipe called for.

Need to add a tsp of cinnamon and cut the carrots in half. Also added five packets of trivia.

Very nice, another mentioned to boil or mash, but that is so different - as when you roast, the cauliflower browns it gets sweeter - In Lebanon they will make a dip of olive oil, lemon and garlic with a little salt and pepper, just delicious!

This is delicious and I didn't even have cheese to put on it.

We really loved cauliflower prepared this way! We cut the head into small florets, and I think it made a big difference because they browned up and got a little crispy on the bottoms. I can imagine that larger pieces would not roast similarly. We also did not turn the cauliflower. It was delicious and we will make this again!

Halved the florets and went 1/2 hour at 400º. Fresh is best, but garlic powder and lemon pepper work as a not too bad substitute.
