This Adriatic southeastern Puglia based dish is simply cauliflower with pasta. This dish is nutritious and healthy and can be prepared with a short pasta of choice and one can substitute broccoli as well. If carnivorious, one can add pancetta, bacon or sausage and / or virutas, strips of cured ham and of course Reggiano Parmesano.
Here is the recipe of my Nonna Margherite.
