Heat the grill to high. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Meanwhile, break the cauliflower into even-sized florets. Drop into the pan and boil for about 7 mins, or until very tender.
Heat the cheese sauce either in the microwave on High for 1 min or in a small pan until heated through, but not boiling. Place the cheese, hazelnuts and breadcrumbs in a bowl and mix together.
Drain the cauliflower and place in the bottom of a large, shallow, baking dish. Pour the warmed sauce over the cauliflower, covering it evenly, then sprinkle with the breadcrumbs. Put under the grill for 5 mins, or until the cheese is bubbling and the breadcrumbs are golden and crusty.
Add broccoli to this dish if you have some. Just cook it for a few minutes less than the cauliflower.
