Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

Im a sucker for roasted veggies.  I eat them almost every night whether as an entree or as a side dish.  It's so simple & delicious.  This takes it up a notch with toasted breadcrumbs & cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat.
Add the oil & onion and saute for 3 minutes.
Add garlic & saute until the onions are golden brown.
