This was delicious and easy. It was so full of flavor and made great leftovers. It’s a Martha Stewart recipe I came across a while ago. I’m adding the recipe here because the page is full of ads.
I made the recipe almost exactly as instructed with one exception. I didn’t cook the cauliflower for the full 40 minutes. I’m not a fan of burnt food and it was getting a little chared at around 25 – 30 minutes in my oven.
1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cut into small florets (about 7 cups)
1 red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/4 cup salt-packed capers, rinsed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
8 ounces dried orecchiette (ear-shaped pasta)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (from 2 lemons)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss together cauliflower, onion, capers, and 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread vegetables in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
Roast, stirring halfway through, until cauliflower is tender and browned, about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain.
