  • 1 pound Chicken Apple Italian Sausage
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 2/3 cup chopped mushrooms shiitake is my fav

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Toss the cauliflower with the olive oil and spread out evenly on a sheet pan.
  • Roast for about 40 minutes until tender and crisp.

  • Add the garlic and toss together the mixture with a rubber spatula or large spoon.
