Oft-overlooked cauliflower is elevated to bubbling, golden-brown heights when paired with Belgian endive and small pasta shapes, then covered in a rich sauce. Gruyere and fresh breadcrumbs top the gratin. Coarse gratings of Parmesan are the rustic finish to this baked dish.

We love Parmesan cheese sprinkled over shredded radicchio. the salad looks like Mount Fuji, all covered with snow.
