You'll love this tasty pasta dish from Carol McElheney of Elk Grove, California. This recipe calls for cauliflower, anchovies, and red-pepper flakes, a trio of ingredients often combined in classic Italian cooking.

    As someone who loves the texture of "el dante" cauliflower, but who quickly has had enough, the advantage of this recipe is to dilute the cauliflower with other harmonious ingredients. I don't like anchovies, so I replaced them with red onions and 5 more garlic cloves (see the similar recipe "Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Parsley, and Breadcrumbs") and with Feta cheese. Feta cheese, unlike those mentioned in this recipe adds little dots of a more lemony taste, so that the dish is not one uniform flavor. In the future, I will multiply the amount of garlic, onion, parsley and feta cheese that I put in this first time, the strong taste of anchovies needs to be compensated by other strong tasting ingredients. Just a warning: this recipe makes huge quan[filtered]ies, more than 4 servings. I almost didn't have a pot big enough to boil all the pasta and cauliflower, and my colander was definitely too small. If you are single or only a couple, you might want to make only half a recipe.

    Loved this recipe. I roasted the cauliflower for 10 to 15 minutes at 450F -- great flavour, rather than boiling it. I also doubled the anchovies.

    I'm a nutrition major in college and when in a rush or can't use our software, we use nutritiondata.com It's a wonderful site, just enter in the ingredients/amounts for the recipe and you can get a full analysis, even print out a nutrition label, the recipe, etc. for multiple/future uses.

    Everything in moderation...has to have plenty of fiber with the cauliflower in it...you can calculate nutrition values for recipes and individual ingredients here: http://recipenutrition.com/ingredients.aspx I can't wait to try this combo-it sounds delicious!

    I agree, ladies. EVERY recipe should have the nutritional info listed. That said, the fat content should be in the low range (5-10g) with the 1/2c of cheese. I'm going to try it - it sounds delicious. And what a great way to use cauliflower.
