Roasted Cauliflower Pasta Toss

Roasted Cauliflower Pasta Toss
  • 1 (2 pound) cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons Gay Lea Spreadables, Original or Gay Lea Salted Butter, melted
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 cup Gay Lea Gold 18% Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or as needed
  • 1 pound short pasta, such as rotini
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Trim cauliflower and separate into small florets. Toss cauliflower with melted butter, garlic and half each salt and pepper. Spread on a parchment paper-lined, rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden and browned.
  3. Transfer 1 cup (250 mL) cauliflower to a food processor. Add sour cream, Parmesan cheese and remaining salt and pepper; pulse until smooth.
  4. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water. Reserve 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cooking water before draining.
  5. Toss hot cooked pasta with sour cream mixture, remaining roasted cauliflower, sun-dried tomatoes and basil; add enough reserved pasta water to make pasta moist and saucy. Serve immediately with additional Parmesan cheese at the table.
