Roasted Cauliflower with Rosemary

Chivoville says:


Very quick and simple to prepare and we both loved it. Be sure to line the pan with foil as suggested in another comment and cleanup is so easy. We don't have salt in the house so I substituted Garlic and Herb Mrs. Dash with good results. I was afraid this would be one of those dishes that is almost inedible without salt, but it was very good. I finally have a use for that rosemary bush in the yard!

My daughter adds cut broccoli florets, bite-sized cuts of red potato, OR julliene baby carrots and fresh green beans; lined baking sheet with foil & covers veggies with foil at 450 for 20 min. She may add a little more olive oil. Family favorite!
