This baked cauliflower parmesan is seasoned and covered in saucy marinara that's topped with bubbly cheese. Cauliflower Parmesan is a delicious vegetarian dish that is a healthier and lighter version of the classic Chicken Parmesan.

For a perfect meal, serve it with an arugula or tossed salad and homemade rustic bread.

ACTIVE: 35 min I TOTAL: 35 min | SERVES: 4

1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 cups marinara sauce (I use Rao's Homemade Marinara Sauce)

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Chopped fresh parsley or basil, for topping

1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Toss the cauliflower florets with the melted butter and olive oil in a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs and 1/4 cup parmesan; season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and roast until tender and crisp, about 35 minutes.

2. Switch the oven to broil. Transfer the cauliflower to a 3-quart baking dish. Top with the marinara sauce, mozzarella and remaining 1/4 cup parmesan. Broil until bubbling,

3 to 4 minutes. Top with chopped parsley.
