  7. Broil until cauliflower and ricotta are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top.

This recipe surprised my husband who is not a big cauliflower fan. For half, I added some red sauce for him. An instant hit! It is now on regular dinner rotation.

This was excellent and perfect as written. Okay, maybe I added more than a pinch of red pepper flakes but the heat level is easily adjusted to suit your tastes. 5 star recipe all the way! Thanks...
