The sauce was the star here with really deep flavor even though this was something I threw together just to use up some vegetables. You could sub practically any vegetable for the cauliflower, that's just what I happened to have in my veggie drawer! Use any type of pasta you like!

Instructions Checklist
  • Put a celery slice in a deep skillet with a cover; add olive oil. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat until celery slice is sizzling, 3 to 5 minutes. Add remaining celery, onion, and garlic to olive oil; turn heat to medium. Cook and stir onion mixture until slightly tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix cauliflower, tomatoes, sage, salt, and pepper into onion mixture; cook and stir over medium-high heat until bubbling, about 5 minutes. Cover skillet with lid, reduce heat to low, and cook until a knife slides easily into cauliflower, about 15 minutes. Add chicken broth if tomato and cauliflower sauce begins to burn.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain and transfer to a serving bowl.

  • Pour tomato and cauliflower sauce over pasta; add Parmesan cheese. Toss to coat.

I had to laugh when I read the title of this recipe because that is exactly what I was doing tonight... scavenging in my fridge for what to make for dinner tonight! I had a bowl of cauliflower that I had roasted with garlic and olive oil the other night - so I went ahead and used that in this recipe. I also used only a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes with the juice as that is what I had on hand. We had a busy night tonight with both of our kids winter band concerts and I had this on the table in about 20 minutes. Our tummies were full and we were out the door by 6:00 p.m. A nice quick pasta dish. Read More

It had a lot of cauliflower and the sage got kind of lost. With less cauliflower some more seasoning and maybe some chicken thrown in would be better. Read More

This serves way more than 4 people. I love cauliflower but it does not belong in this dish. Read More
