Farfalle With Cauliflower and Sausage

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by IngridH

This comes from the December 2008 issue of Cooking Light. I love the flavor of roasted cauliflower, so this sounded like a great and easy combination. Their recipe calls for mild turkey italian sausage, but I think this would be good with any italian sausage, mild or spicy.

This is divine. I use spicy sausage, and it marries perfectly with the cauliflower. The only problem is that it is SO good, it's hard to keep everyone away from it until dinner!
