Cauliflower and Pasta with Creme Fraiche

20140423-062528.jpg

I had this wonderful creme fraiche sauce leftover from Sunday that I tossed with some cauliflower and pasta, then topped with some Aleppo pepper and fresh chives – yummy and easy!

Ingredients:
1 small head of cauliflower broken into small florets
8 oz pasta

For the sauce
4 oz crème fraîche
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1/2 TBSP whole grain mustard
1/2 TBSP capers, roughly chopped
1/2 TBSP thyme
1 TBSP chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tsp black peppercorn
1 tsp lemon zest
⅛ tsp salt
Aleppo pepper
Chives

Cook pasta according to package. Add the cauliflower for the last 3 minutes.

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small food processor and process until combined.

Drain pasta/cauliflower and toss with sauce. Top with a little Aleppo pepper and snipped fresh chives.

Serves 4.
