This week Cathy shares a recipe for delicious Roasted Cauliflower.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Cathy McMahon (cjmcmahon@ameritech.net). I have been an advocate of a healthy lifestyle for many years.

I have researched all the healthy food related articles that have come out and I found that the only way to be healthy, happy, and fit is to make a conscious effort to CHOOSE it. The choice is a lifestyle not a diet. You can enjoy good tasting foods that help you to achieve a healthier way of life. I would like to share a recipe with you for delicious Roasted Cauliflower.

1-2 pkg. Cauliflower Florets
½ cup grated Asiago or Manchego Cheese
2 Tblsp. Italian Seasoning (You get them bottled at your grocery store)
3Tblsp. Olive Oil

Heat the oven for 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. Sprinkle 2 Tblsp. olive oil on the baking sheet. Put in the cauliflower and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and remaining olive oil. Make sure cauliflower is mixed well with other ingredients. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 40 minutes until lightly browned.
