Cauliflower has been so inexpensive all year.

I have made it every way possible.

This is a recipe that I make when I need a quick meatless meal.

4 cups cooked cauliflower, cut into small bite size pieces.

Three tablespoons olive oil

One small diced onion

4 cloves diced garlic

One 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes

8 basil leaves

One cup parmesan cheese plus more for garnish

One cup cream

3 tablespoons capers with the brine

1/2 to one teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes depending on how spicy you want it.

One tablespoon butter

Cook the cauliflower and put it on the side.

Put the olive oil in a large skillet.

Add the onions and cook till soft.

Add the garlic and cook for three to four minutes.

Add all the tomatoes with the juice.

Bring to a boil and reduce the tomato juices slightly.

This takes about 8 minutes.

Add the basil, cream, cheese, pepper and capers and bring to a simmer.

Add the cauliflower and heat for another ten minutes.

Add the tablespoon of butter

Bring your pasta to a boil and drain then pour into the cauliflower.

I also made spiral butternut squash instead of the pasta and it was really good. See below:

Sprinkle liberally with extra good grated cheese.
