"My husband recently became a vegan, so I devised this recipe one cold night so both of us could eat well. This is based on traditional pasta dishes from Chez Panisse and Zuni in the Bay Area of California. Sourdough breadcrumbs sauteed in olive oil until crisp would be a tasty alternative to Parmesan." — SandyT

small Yukon Gold potatoes
onion, cut into chunks
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 small head
cauliflower, cut into florets
1 (8 ounce) package
dry penne pasta
grated Parmesan cheese for topping
I have to admit, I never made this recipe with the pasta, as instructed. Instead, I made the potato/cauliflower portion as a vegetable side dish for my last dinner party. I honestly cannot say how good it is with penne, but I can say that the potato/cauliflower portion was an excellent side dish! Everyone at the party raved about it, and it also made yummy leftovers.
In the 3 serving version.
The ingredients list 3 Tbsp of oil, yet in point 2 in the directions 1/4 cup of oil is described and in point 3. we drizzle with the remaining oil. Where do we get the remaining oil? I ended up chosing my quantity.
I am confused as to how much oil is to be used, total. I would give 3 stars for the end product but no star for the recipe description.
This was really good. I would probably not use quite so much olive oil next time -- just a taaad less. I only made the cauliflower and potato portion of this, and didn't have onion or rosemary, so it was modified slightly out of necessity. But I would definitely recommend.
I used broccoli instead of cauliflower - SO GOOD!
I chopped up regular white potatos and found that the initial cooking left them extremely underdone. I increased the heat to 475 for another 30 minutes and then added the cauliflower.
pleasant, aromatic, and tasty. good side dish.
Good recipe, but I wasn't crazy about the combinations of tastes...
