romesco is a sauce usually made of red peppers, tomatoes, etc. there are many versions. First saw it on a Giada show, this is a Spanish sauce known to be from some place that starts with a T . my short term memory is in full swing.

Not quite a marinara as it has more red peppers but...

same same but different... (and I'll tell you the story of that expression later)

Oh my goodness, that looks good! Will you please share your recipe, Gravy Queen? I love cauliflower - it's one of my favorite veggies and it's so versatile. I may have to sub another cheese for the manchego, but I'm sure I could put together the romesco sauce. Boy oh boy that looks yummy. Thank you for sharing.

And I want that gorgeous wooden serving board!

If we all can't wait for GQ to come back and let us in on her recipe, I'm sure we can calm our taste buds with something from Google. LOTS of hits when I did a search. After all, cauliflower is the new potato! So many choices, so little "oomph" to do. I bet you could use any cheese you like too, although I do like Manchego. If given a choice just to snack on though, I pick Iberico. It's more of the younger sister of Manchego - a little softer, a little milder...and more likely to get lost in this recipe because it is.

Post good read

Here is the web site for this cheese. Interesting.

manchego-cheese

They also show substitutes that can be used depending on which manchego you need for your recipe. That gives you an idea on what the different ones taste like.

The recipe is from Olive food magazine , if you can't see the attached pic I will write it up no problem . Manchego is a wonderful Spanish cheese and Romesco sauce is a Spanish sauce made with almonds and peppers . Well worth a try
