Baked Italian Cauliflower

 1 large head cauliflower
 ¼ cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 4 tbsp dijon mustard
 ¼ cup grated Parmegiano Reggiano cheese
 ½ tsp Salt
 ½ tsp ground black pepper
 ¼ cup chopped, fresh parsley
 lemon wedges for serving

Preheat your oven to 450°F


Remove the leaves and stem from the cauliflower and cut it length-wise into "steaks".


Whisk together the Colavita Olive Oil, 3 tbsp of the mustard, 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper into a small bowl.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the cauliflower on top. Using a pastry brush, baste the cauliflower with the olive oil and mustard mixture, coating both sides.


Roast for about 25-30 minutes until the cauliflower starts to turn dark brown and crispy. Remove from the oven.


Meanwhile, combine the parsley and Parmegiano Reggiano cheese in a bowl.


Coat the cooked cauliflower with the remaining mustard and sprinkle with the herb and cheese mixture.


Serve immediately with lemon wedges and extra herbs and cheese (if desired).
