  • 1/2 medium head cauliflower (about 1 pound) cut into florets
  • 8 ounce(s) Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved quartered if large

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 ounce(s) grated pecorino plus more for serving

  3. 3. Add the vegetables, pecorino, 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water, and the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the pasta and toss to combine (add more cooking water if the pasta seems dry). Serve sprinkled with additional pecorino.
