Cauliflower with Parmesan Sauce

The theme for Monday Posts in March is Winter Vegetables.

These will be mainly cruciferous vegetable: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage.

Once my winter squashes / pumpkins are done we enjoy all of these winter veggies right up until asparagus season.

These are simple, easy recipes – no detailed photos, etc.
