Roasted Cauliflower

I've never been all that excited about cauliflower. It seems to exist mainly as a delivery method for something else - something with an actual flavor, like ranch dressing or cheese sauce. But, when I tried this recipe, I discovered that cauliflower actually has it's own yummy taste. This is worth a try!

florets from 2 heads of cauliflower 
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon peppe

Preheat oven to 450°.  Place cauliflower in a large roasting pan or jelly-roll pan. Drizzle with oil; toss well to coat. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until tender and browned, stirring every 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley, thyme, and garlic. Bake 5 minutes. Combine cauliflower mixture, cheese, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss well to combine.
