Cauliflower Bread Thingy from Italy!

Remember this post?Well I finally decided to make it!
Here is the recipe:
1 quart half-and-half
1 head cauliflower (2 pounds), cut into 1-inch-wide florets
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
3 ciabatta rolls
small bit of butter
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Bring half-and-half with cauliflower, covered directly with a round of parchment paper, just to a boil in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, then reduce heat and simmer until cauliflower is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
Transfer cauliflower with a slotted spoon to a blender and blend with 1/4 cup cooking liquid until smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids), then add salt and pepper. Reheat over low heat, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes.
Slice the ciabatta in half like you would an English muffin. Butter the insides of each piece. Set on a cookie sheet. Stick in the oven on high broil until the top is golden. Take out of oven, spoon puree over the ciabatta. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over puree. Put back in oven and set broil to high. Take out when golden and toasty!

Blue was very helpful in waiting with me right by the oven!
