Five Star Recipes: Roasted Cauliflower Pasta

Ok, I tried this, just because I’ve heard a LOT of good things about roasted cauliflower lately.  It’s not a vegetable that my kids take a shine to, in general.  Plus, cauliflower was on sale the other day at Sprouts.  Anyway, here it is — Roasted Cauliflower Pasta.

I really like the bland nutty-ness of the cauliflower (they weren’t kidding, roasted cauliflower is a lot better than raw stuff, which I actually don’t mind), along with the green olives and the Parmesan shavings. 

The kids couldn’t get enough.  I had to cut them off so they would go to karate.  They did say it was a little spicy at the beginning.  I didn’t add a whole 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper, but pretty close.

It didn’t take long, and it wasn’t hard.  I think the only thing I’d do different is maybe try some whole wheat pasta next time.  I will share that I don’t usually end-up buying whole wheat pasta, just because regular pasta is so much cheaper.  But, because there isn’t a ton of protein (although there’s a good amount of Parmesan) whole wheat might make it a little more well-rounded.

    This looks like something we would love. Often I roast just cauliflower and garlic together for a side dish, but this goes even further. Thanks for sharing.
