the typical cauliflower growing in my earth box

the growing Romasesco cauliflower

cut and now what???


1 head romanesco cauliflower, cut into small flowerettes
olive oil
5 cloves garlic, sliced
Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 to 1/2 box pasta, I like the shells because they hold the garlic and cheese
Parmesan cheese, vegan style


Bring a pot of water to boil.  Boil the cauliflower for 5 minutes.  Remove the flowerettes from the water.  Retain 1 cup of water for later use.  Use the pot of water to cook the pasta according to the pkg directions.

In a saucepan, heat and cook the parboiled broccoli, garlic, oil and some of the retained pasta water.  Cook over medium heat until the vegetable is nice and tender.  Add more of the cooking water if necessary.

When the garlic and cauliflower are tender, add the pasta, seasonings and salt and pepper.  Stir in about 1/2 cup vegan Parmesan cheese.  Serve with extra cheese.
