I love this recipe and will be making it regularly! I had already roasted a head of garlic, so used several cloves in the mix and omitted the butter entirely. I also used freshly squeezed half a lemon. I have refrigerated it for several lunches this week and did not use the parmesan cheese....a low fat and cholesterol dish!

This was well received by my family. The flavors were great I love the kick the lemon gives it. I had found a great deal on colored cauliflower so I made it using white, orange and purple. The kept their colors as you can see in the picture I posted.
