A wonderful change but I made a few changes based on what was on hand by using dried dill instead of fresh herbs and skipped the pepper flakes. Very good with chicken tonight. Thanks for sharing!

I made one serving and adjusted all the ingredients. The flavors were delicious and I really enjoyed it with my swordfish. The capers and hots gave it just the right amount of hot and salty, which is a taste I truly love. Just the right amount of everything. I will surely make these again! Thank you for sharing your recipe here with us Luv! Linda

Lovely way to serve cauliflower! I just made half a recipe for the two of us. Instead of canned tomatoes, i had a couple of large fresh tomatoes i needed to use up, they worked perfectly and i used the dill to sprinkle over the top. Very enjoyable combination of veggies!

Yummy! I love all of these flavors together. I made it as directed with fresh basil over the top. Freddy Cat says thanks for the 'collie'flower! Made for the Billboard and Spring tag games.
