A great weeknight pasta dish packed full of vegetables and flavor.
A pasta dish is a great weeknight dinner choice, but sometimes the traditional flavors of tomato, basil, and garlic can become tedious. This recipe adapted from the vegetable queen Deborah Madison reimagines pasta as a supporting character in a dish, there to soak up the flavors created by the combination of cauliflower, saffron, crushed chili peppers, and parsley. A sprinkling of feta at the end adds a creamy saltiness, but you can skip the feta if you want. If anything, leaving the feta out allows the other flavors to really shine. Keep this recipe in mind when you're looking for an easy, healthy pasta dish that doesn't rely on a traditional sauce!
