Roasted Cauliflower Penne with Rosemary Cream

Make sure to roast your cauliflower first. Here’s the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 large clove garlic, halved
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 sprigs rosemary, 1 sprig finely chopped
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound whole wheat penne pasta
  • 1 head cauliflower, roasted
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese, plus more to pass around the table
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

Preparation

Rub the inside of a small saucepan all over with the garlic. Add the cream, the two whole rosemary sprigs and the nutmeg; season with pepper and cook over medium-low heat until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Discard the rosemary.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and transfer the pasta to a serving bowl. Add the rosemary cream, cauliflower and Pecorino Romano cheese; toss to coat.


Season with salt and pepper and top with the walnuts and chopped rosemary. Pass more cheese around the table.
