Zesty Cauliflower Pasta

Zesty Cauliflower Pasta

Roasted cauliflower, lemon, capers, caramelized onions and hearty whole grain pasta. Top the whole thing off with some roasted walnuts and you have a tasty, nutrient dense meal fit for a king (or queen!) And just in case — like me– you are without a royal chef, it is super easy to prepare. ☺️ Hope you like it!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Toss together cauliflower, onion, capers and 2 TBS olive oil or a rimmed baking sheet; season with Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
  3. Spread vegetables in a single layer and roast, stirring with a spatula halfway through, until cauliflower is tender and browned, 30-40 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of boiling water until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain.
  5. Toss pasta with roasted veggies, remaining 2 TBS olive oil, parsley, and lemon zest. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with toasted, crumbled walnuts; serve.
Recipe Notes

*If you are watching sodium intake, remove capers from brine and rinse under running water, place on a paper towel and press to remove much of the salty brine. The capers will still add their unique flavor, just with a bit less salt!
