I was cooking dinner with the ingredients I had on hand, and used diced tomatoes in place of plum tomatoes. It turned out just GREAT! We all loved it.

A great way to eat cauliflower! A nice break from the cheese or butter sauce. I did use the roux; then I made it as the previous reviewer (papergoddess) made hers....all in one skillet. Works out great. I will prepare this again. Thanx for a new cauliflower recipe; and thanx to papergoddess for recommending it.

Delightful! What a wonderful way to eat cauliflower. This turns a bland, ho-hum vege into a real treat. I omitted the roux to make it low fat, since I am dieting. I didn't steam the cauliflower seperately. I sauteed the onion and garlic, added cauliflower, tomatoes, and herbs, and just covered and steamed it for about 15 minutes. Note; if you read the ingredients on your bottle of Italian Seasonings, it's probably the same as Herbs de Provence: Rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, sage, savory.
