My family was hesitant on eating this. It sounded boring and bland. Don't let it fool you. It was delicious! The portions look small, but it's VERY filling. I sprinkled the cauliflower with garlic powder before putting it in the oven and added salt to the water I boiled the gnocchi in. It made a HUGE difference.
I decided to try this recipe despite my low expectations. I thought it would be bland and dry (not to mention I'm not a huge fan of cauliflower.) I was pleasantly surprised that it was neither. The sage and Parmesan (make sure you use real Parmesan) really provided nice flavor. I went with the pine nuts option - my suggestion there is to add them about half-way through the cooking time as they were a little overdone. I'd also suggest avoiding white plates when serving - not much color in this dish.
sounds good but it also sounds dry? no sauce?
we loved it. the cauliflower is delicious when it's roasted. since pine nuts cost at least $1.00 to buy, i used walnuts.
So easy and quick...I added chopped garlic to the cauliflower mix.
It was good.
Flavorful yet simple. Easy to make.
