  • 1 large head fresh cauliflower
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 4 oz sliced prosciutto Parma ham in UK
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • Parsley for garnish


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Place tomatoes in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil (I used about 2 tablespoons). Spread the tomatoes out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with desired amount of salt & pepper. Roast for approximately 20 minutes, turning halfway though. Tomatoes should be nicely blistered. Set aside.
  • Next, separate the cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Blanch in a large pot of boiling water for 5 minutes; drain well.
  • Lightly grease a 3 qt/3L baking dish. Place the cauliflower and tomatoes in the dish, distributing each well. Tear prosciutto into large pieces and tuck it between, the cauliflower and tomatoes, again distributing it well.
  • Next, in a small saucepan, melt the butter then stir in the cream and bring it to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 1/4 cups of the cheese and simmer for another minute. Add any salt & pepper to taste.
  • Pour the sauce evenly over the cauliflower mixture, then top with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden and prosciutto is crispy.
