Hello blog friends.  I often run out of ideas for what to make for dinner.  I enjoy trying out different recipes and food with vegetables and pasta.

I decided to make for dinner one night roasted cauliflower and pasta.  

I have a husband who absolutely LOVES cauliflower.  Well, let me tell you this dish was a HUGE hit with him.  He LOVED it!


What You Will Need


One head of cauliflower cut up into small pieces and roasted.


The roasted cauliflower and pasta all prepared and mixed together.

This dish is perfect for a weeknight or weekend meal.
