wholewheat pasta with cauliflower, walnuts and feta

Another from the Riverford box

serves 6

olive oil
1 cauliflower, cut into florets
4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
1 onion, peeled and sliced
500g wholewheat pasta
1 pinch of red pepper flakes
white wine vinegar
lemon juice
handful of toasted walnuts
100g feta cheese
salt and pepper

Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta.  Meanwhile, sauté the cauliflower in oil, until it begins to soften (I find that soaking a cauli in cold water, then draining (very) well, assists this process).  Season, and add the pepper flakes and onions.  Continue cooking over a medium heat until tender.

Add the garlic, then remove the pan from the heat, tossing the vegetables so the garlic doesn't burn. Add the wlnuts and a few drops each of vinegar and lemon juice. Season once more.

Drain the pasta and add to the cauliflower.  Add a little oil to coat the pasta thoroughly, and serve with cheese crumbled over the top.
