CREAMY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER PASTA

Pasta is one of those meals that can be simple to make and a go-to solution for an easy weeknight dinner. I recently tried making a homemade creamy pasta sauce and I am convinced I will never have the jar stuff again, so easy and delicious!

Ingredients:
• 1 package linguine
• 2 egg yolks
• 2 garlic cloves chopped
• 1 lemon juiced
• half a cup cherry tomatoes sliced
• 1 cup of heavy cream
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 small head of cauliflower
• half a cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. While the water is heating, combine 1 cup heavy cream with half a cup of grated Parmesan cheese in a medium size bowl. Freshly squeeze one lemon and continue to mix, salt and pepper to taste. Next add two eggs and combine until smooth.

Once the water is boiling, cook the linguine until al dente. On a medium sized skillet heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil on medium to high heat. Roast the cauliflower florets until slightly browned, then add sliced cherry tomatoes and finely chopped garlic. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until the cauliflower is slightly tender and the tomatoes have been roasted.

Drain the water from the linguine and add in the cream mixture and cook on low heat, stirring consistently. Cook until the sauce has thickened, about 2-5 minutes.

Instead of mixing all the ingredients together, I thought it would be great to top the pasta with cauliflower and tomatoes so that each person could have the amount that they like. Sprinkle in a bit of Parmesan cheese and some fresh herbs of your choice. I had thyme in the garden and I take advantage of using it whenever possible.
