    LizP's Note:

    Got this from the Rachael Ray Show. I made it for dinner right away and it was amazing! She made it with Romanesco Broccoli, but I couldn't find that, so I used Cauliflower. She also said you could use regular broccoli, but I haven't tried that yet. Rachael says this serves 4, but in our house a full pound of pasta easily serves 6-8.

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil for pasta.

      Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add onions and garlic to pan, and season with salt, pepper and bay. Stir and cook 8-10 minutes to soften.
    3. 3
      Add wine to the pan, stir 1 minute then add stock.
    4. 4
      Arrange cauliflower over onions and add crushed red pepper, lemon zest and rosemary to the pan.

      Add ladleful of starchy pasta cooking water to the vegetables.

      We all loved this recipe! It was delicious! I don't think the one star rating is fair. If you don't like ricotta cheese, then don't make the recipe. Don't give a one star rating like it is a bad recipe. This recipe is GREAT if you like the ingredients....and my family really did. It came together quicky and easily and I have already had 2 requests to make it again.

      The ingredients did not jive for me. I think I just don't like ricotta cheese. Won't make again.
