Cauliflower & Broccoli Pasta

Adapted from Chez Panisse Vegetables



Boil a large pot of salted water.   Saute the cauliflower and broccoli in olive oil in a large saute pan.  When the cauliflower begins to soften, season with salt and pepper and add the onion.   Saute over medium high heat until the vegetables are brown and tender.   The cauliflower and broccoli should still be slightly crunchy and should not look steamed.  Add the garlic and rosemary and remove from the heat, tossing and stirring so the garlic doesn’t burn; if it starts to brown, add a splash of water.  Add the chili oil, vinegar and the pine nuts.  Taste and correct the seasoning for salt, chili oil and vinegar.  When the pasta is done, drain and add to the cauliflower, adding enough extra-virgin olive oil to coat the pasta thoroughly, then add the parsley and cheese, toss together and serve.
