Sicilian Cauliflower Pasta

A simple and delicious Sicilian pasta recipe! Actually so, so, soooo good.

8 cups small cauliflower florets (1 medium head)
1/3 cup olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
12 oz. linguine
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chili flakes
2 tbsp capers
1 tbsp chopped anchovy fillets
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated pecorino cheese
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 2: Break florets into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl. Toss with 2 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread on a baking sheet and roast, tossing occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, or until browned and tender.

Step 3: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add linguine and cook for about 12 minutes, or until al dente.
