      What a great recipe to showcase cauliflower! Lemon, garlic, parsley, and Parmesan compliment it. Made as posted except I put all the parsley in with the water. The sauce is not thick but there to spoon onto plate.

      This was really a yummy side with tonight's meatloaf. I had to use frozen cauliflower but it worked well, it just didn't take as long to cook. I added some extra lemon because it's one of my favorite things. The parsley was fresh out of the yard and even DH enjoyed it. :D

      While eating dinner, my husband said, "good cauliflower." He was so right. (This comes from a man who says he is never right!). This dish was light and delicious. I have never thought about pairing lemon with cauliflower-it works.
