    --------      ------------        --------------------------------
      2            medium          head cauliflower, cored and
                                                     cut into large florets
     1            cup                  water
     8            tablespoons (1 stick) butter, 4 tablespoons
                                           diced, 4 tablespoons melted
       Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    1             cup                 fine dry bread crumbs  (panko)
    1             cup                 grated Romano cheese
    1             cup                 chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

1.  Arrange the cauliflower neatly in a roasting pan, add the water, place the diced butter evenly over the florets, and season lightly with salt and pepper.

2.  Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Most of the liquid will evaporate and the cauliflower should be about half-cooked.

3.  Thoroughly combine the melted butter, bread crumbs, cheese, and parsley, and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the florets. Return the pan to the oven, and cook for another 25 to 30 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender but not overcooked.

The topping should be golden brown, not burned.
