3 cups cauliflower florets, from half a medium head (about 1 1/2 lb.)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 pound green (spinach)
penne pasta
1 cup pitted black olives, sliced
1 (28 oz.) jar marinara sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan


Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss cauliflower florets with olive oil on a large baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast, stirring and shaking pan once or twice, until cauliflower is lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add pasta. Cook according to package directions or until soft, but not mushy, 10 to 12 minutes; drain in a colander. Return pasta to pot.

Add olives, marinara sauce and cauliflower to pasta in pot. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup Parmesan over pasta and toss. Serve with remaining Parmesan cheese for topping.
