Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Cauliflower, raw, 2 head, medium (5-6" dia), cut into florets
    Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    Walnuts, 0.5 cup pieces or chips
    Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia), thinly sliced
    *Crushed red pepper flakes, 0.1 tbsp
    *Lemon Juice, 0.5 lemon yields
    *Balsamic Vinegar, 1 tbsp
    Feta Cheese, 100 grams, crumbled
    *Eating Right Whole Wheat Penne Pasta (dry), 400 gram(s)


Directions

Preheat oven to 400.

Toss cauliflower florets in half the olive oil. Spread on a greased baking sheet and roast thirty minutes, turning halfway.

Heat a skillet and toast the walnut pieces (dry). Once toasted, break into slightly smaller pieces.

Add the remaining oil to the hot skillet, then saute onion slices until soft and just beginning to caramelize. Return walnut pieces to skillet and add a pinch of red pepper flakes. Add lemon juice and balsamic (it will sizzle!), saute for a minute or two, and then turn off the heat. Leave skillet on the hot burner to let flavours blend.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, toss with cauliflower, stir in onion mixture and sprinkle with crumbled feta.

Serving Size: Six servings.
