Kamut Pasta / Pasta with Cauliflower

I just discovered this Kamut pasta at the local grocery store. What a great find! Kamut is a type of ancient wheat, and it is higher in protein and has a higher mineral content than the standard wheat we get here. It also has a slightly sweet-nutty taste.

I really wanted to taste the pasta itself, so I just served it with a little butter, some olive oil, and grated Parmesan.

Pasta with roasted cauliflower is one of my very favorite dishes. The key is to cut the cauliflower up into small pieces and to roast it, (drizzled with salt and olive oil), for a long time at a low temperature. You really want lots of caramelization which equals lots of flavor. To serve, I just mix the cauliflower with the cooked pasta--it's so delicious you really don't need to add anything else.

I usually roast two heads of cauliflower for each pound of pasta.

I am counting this as an early Vegan Tuesday since I'll be out and about tomorrow night.


  1. That sounds yummy! I'm not a fan of tomato sauce so I also like recipes with "white pasta."

  2. I never thought of putting roasted cauliflower on pasta - it sounds great!

  3. Love roasted cauliflower. I'll have to look for the kamut pasta it sounds delicious.
