Truly outstanding! This confirms my theory that all roasted vegetables are delicious. Plus the bacon fat and oil makes a delicious coating for the pasta.
I *really* wanted to love this recipe. I like the idea of roasting cauliflower, etc. As one review mentioned that they wished it was "saucier", I share the same sentiment. However I did eat it immediately. There wasn't enough cauliflower; so I roasted broccoli to add more. Personally I didn't think the effort was equal to the taste. Perhaps I might use this as a base and make modifications accordingly.
I have lost count of how many times I have made this! I make it for both regular weeknights and when entertaining. Like another reviewer said once the cauliflower has roasted everything comes together quickly, so it does pay to prep. Cheap, easy, very flavorful.
This was good! Roasted cauliflower is so good, pair it with pasta = success!
I didn't even make the pasta part of this recipe. I made the cauliflower part and it was incredible. We don't normally eat cauliflower but have been searching for other veggie type sides. This worked well. We only cooked it for 35 minutes and it was very tender. We also put foil on the pan to make cleanup easier.
I made no changes to this recipe, and thought the finished product was good, but perhaps not worth the effort (particularly not on a weeknight). The leftovers were actually even better, though, and if nothing else, the roasted cauliflower was delicious - I'd do that for a quick side anytime.
I love Cauliflower, but this was very bland. I used pancetta rather than bacon, so perharps that made a difference, but I did not think this was saucy at all, and thought it was very bland.
both my wife and I enjoyed this recipe. Make sure you have everything ready ahead of time as it cooks quick.
I may not be giving this a completely accurate review since I didn't serve immediately but I really thought the roasted cauliflower had a nice sweet flavor. Also, I used a bit of seasoned salt instead of regular salt and this really was a nice addition and I thought really accented the lemon. I just wish it was a bit "saucier" but that was probably because I didn't eat it immediately.
This was a quick and lovely dish. My family has discovered the nutty sweetness of roasted cauliflower before but the flavor stars of this dish were the lemon zest and fresh thyme. Bright, fresh and interesting. A great change of pace for weeknight pasta.
I made this last week for dinner. First time I have ever seen my husband eat cauliflower. Think the bacon helped! Very delicious. Definitely a keeper.
Made this for my husband and he loved it. Usually, he's a picky eater and doesn't normally eat cauliflower but he really enjoyed this recipe. It's a good, light dinner option.
