To create the perfect Pasta with Cauliflower, gather these essential ingredients:

  • 1 head of Cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 300g Pasta (your choice)

  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced

  • 4 Anchovy fillets, finely chopped

  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • Pasta Water (reserved from cooking)

Crafting Your Pasta with Cauliflower:

Prepare the Cauliflower: Begin by cutting the cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Steam or boil until just tender, retaining a slight crunch.

Cook the Pasta: In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Reserve a cup of pasta water before draining.

Sauté Garlic and Anchovies: In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and chopped anchovies, sautéing until the anchovies dissolve and the garlic is fragrant.

Add Cauliflower and Tomatoes: Incorporate the cauliflower florets and halved cherry tomatoes into the pan. Sauté until the tomatoes soften and the cauliflower absorbs the flavors.

Combine Pasta and Finish: Toss the cooked pasta into the pan, ensuring an even coating of the flavorful mixture. If needed, add reserved pasta water to create a silky sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and Garnish: Plate the Pasta with Cauliflower, garnishing with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper. For an extra touch, consider topping with grated Parmesan cheese or fresh basil.
