The strong flavors of cauliflower, garlic, red-pepper flakes, and Parmesan cheese balance perfectly, raising these common, readily available ingredients to new heights.
8 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
6 cloves garlic, minced
6 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 pound linguine
1 head cauliflower (about 2 1/2 pounds), cut into small florets
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
Linguine with Cauliflower, Garlic, and Bread Crumbs Recipe at
In a large frying pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the oil over moderate heat. Add the bread crumbs and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Remove. Wipe out the pan.

Heat the remaining 4 tablespoons oil in the same pan over moderately low heat. Add the garlic, parsley, and red-pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the anchovy paste. Remove from the heat.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the linguine until almost done, about 8 minutes. Add the cauliflower and bring back to a boil. Cook until the cauliflower and pasta are just done, about 4 minutes longer. Drain. Toss with the garlic mixture, salt, bread crumbs, and Parmesan. Top with additional Parmesan.


*Substitute broccoli for the cauliflower.
*Add a handful each of raisins and pine nuts at the same time as the garlic, parsley, and red-pepper flakes.
*Use four chopped anchovy fillets instead of the anchovy paste.
