Ready in 30 minutes

Pasta, pasta… we all love pasta.

After a wonderful weekend, we say “good bye” to the old week and “hello” to a new week with a new recipe adapted from Food & Wine magazine. Easy to made, delicious to the bite.

Wishing you all a wonderful new week.


¾ pound bucatini or periatelli pasta
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ pound cauliflower florets cut into 1 inch pieces
½ pound Brussels sprouts; halved or quartered if large
Salt and pepper
½ onions finely chopped
2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
4 plump oil packed anchovies; minced
1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped thyme
½ cup dry bread crumbs
½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano plus more
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the pasta according to the packaging information. Drain and reserve ½ cup of the cooking water.

Meanwhile in a large deep skillet, heat ¼ cup of the oil. Add the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until charred and crispy tender, about 5 minutes.

Add ¼ cup of oil to the skillet and add the onion, garlic, anchovies, crushed red peppers (optional), rosemary, thyme. Cook stirring until the onion is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Cover and cook over low heat until the cauliflower and sprouts are tender, about 3 minutes. Keep warm.

In a small skillet add the remaining 2 tablespoon olive oil and add the bread crumbs. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes, season with salt and transfer to a bowl.

Add the pasta and reserved cooking water to the vegetables and cook over moderate heat, tossing until the water is nearly absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir the ½ cup of grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Serve the pasta in large bowls, passing the bread crumbs and the cheese alongside.
