  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until beginning to soften but not brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook another minute. Add the cauliflower; salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir another minute to combine.
  2. Stir in the sauce and white wine; add 1 tablespoon of the parsley. Cook and stir 5 minutes at a low simmer.
  3. Turn heat to medium-low, cover. Cook until cauliflower is almost tender, about 10 more minutes, stirring a few times.
  4. Turn broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Pour cauliflower and tomato sauce onto the baking sheet. Gently scoop some of the tomato sauce back over the top of the cauliflower. Spread the cauliflower evenly on the sheet.
  6. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese then mozzarella cheese over the cauliflower.
  7. Broil until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned in spots, about 2 minutes. Watch carefully so cheese doesn't burn. Let rest 3 minutes before transferring to serving platter. Garnish with remaining fresh parsley.

This was great! A new way to cook cauliflower is always appreciated. I followed recipe except I used an Italian blend of cheese. Can't wait to share with my low carb eating friends.

Both my husband and I liked the taste of this sauce but I found it to be a little runny to be an attractive side dish. I elected to serve it over linguine instead and it made a different but ta...

we liked it, didn't take out of the sauce to put on a sheet pan and broil but threw the whole pan in not wild about it

This is lovely way to use cauliflower! The sauce gets a bit runny but I just soaked it all up with some fresh Italian bread. Great flavor, easy to put together, and a new way to eat cauliflower ...

The best thing about cauliflower is its versatility- I did something similar to this dish but put my own twist on it! I first baked the cauliflower florets (an entire head because it shrinks) ...
