Time 50m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 medium head cauliflower, broken into small florets
½ cup salted butter
1 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
2 pints heavy cream
1 (16 ounce) package farfalle pasta
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste

  • Make broccoli rice by pulsing the chopped broccoli for a few seconds until it starts forming a crumbly mixture (don't overblend and turn it into a paste). It's best to do this in batches to get even crumbs.
  • In a large pan heat up the oil, add the garlic and broccoli, season and cook over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes until softened stirring all the time. Remove from the heat and transfer into a large bowl.
  • To make the sauce heat up the butter, add the flour and whisk until the mixture becomes thick and smooth. Add the milk, increase the heat and cook stirring with a whisk until the sauce thickens and starts bubbling up. Lower the heat then simmer for 1 minute whisking all the time.

I added 1/4 tsp of Italian seasoning to the sauce, the cayenne alone wasn't enough for me. I agree with another review, I too would use bow tie or smaller pasta next time.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower florets and red pepper flakes; saute until browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Add heavy cream; cook until reduced by half, 10 to 15 minutes.
Milk, cheese, cream and butter—these mouthwatering, creamy pasta recipes have it all. Store-bought Alfredo sauce speeds along this flavorful, meatless entree. I use dry pasta, but you can use refrigerated fettuccine to make this recipe even faster.
Instructions Boil a salted pot of water for the pasta. Heat the oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli to the pan and give it a good stir. Take the pan off the heat and take the broccoli out. Add the chicken broth, cream cheese, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the skillet.
Onions, carrots, and garlic cook in olive oil until buttery soft, then get blended with chickpeas and water to form a deeply savory puree that coats pasta beautifully. It’s a satisfying dish that just happens to be vegan.
