Seriously, friends. This Pasta with Romesco Sauce and Roasted Cauliflower is 

  1. SO. FREAKIN. TASTY.
  2. Looks pretty dang fancy (let’s be real — we all eat with our eyes first)
  3. Takes just about 30 minutes from start to finish. And if you make your Romesco Sauce ahead of time, it’ll be even easier.

To be honest, I’m not sure if Romesco Sauce is traditionally served over pasta…but who cares, it tastes good. Which pretty much sums up my philosophy with food. Following the same ol’ recipes and techniques gets kind of boring, ya know? But I’m pretty sure I could eat this Pasta with Romesco Sauce and Roasted Cauliflower for at least a month straight before I got sick of it. At least.

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • Not feelin’ the Cauli? That’s cool, you can totally roast any other veggie you’d like. Or just skip it!
  • I used Gluten Free Spaghetti (made from Chickpeas!) for this recipe, but you can really use whatever you’d like. This would probably be more fun with wagon wheels or bow ties if I’m being honest.
  • If you’re looking for a super speedy meal, you can prep both the Romesco and Roasted Cauliflower in advance. Just reheat while the pasta is cooking, et voilà!

  1. Perhaps you could get on the VegFest circuit to have cooking classes. Sedona has an awesome one every January (third weekend). Contact them at http://www.healthyworldsedona.com if there is interest. I know Phoenix, Denver and Colorado Springs and NYC are some of the other venues. Have you thought about going to the Main Street Vegan Academy in NYC. Check out their website for great podcasts. I am vegan for all the same reasons since Feb 2017 after I heard MD’s, scientists, fitness and nutritionists speak. You go girl! (You actually make a living doing a blog?)

  2. Vegan Yogis for the win! I just been looking around your blog (#subscribed) and I love what you’re doing here 🙂 can’t wait to see more

  3. I used basil instead of parsley and added in some broccoli to roast and this was delicious, mine wasn’t as pretty as yours but still divine!

  4. I personally haven’t had Romesco sauce in such a long time! I bet it would taste amazing with black bean spaghetti or the chickpea spaghetti you used. Also, in my opinion, cauliflower tastes the best when roasted–yours looks perfect!
