For The Love Of Italian Food – Pasta And Cauliflower Recipe

Mangia! Mangia! I just can’t get enough of the fantastic taste of Italian foods. Italian pasta, pizza, pork, beef and seafood recipes are much a part of my everyday life.

Growing up Italian in Chicago has been a wonderful culinary experience to say the least. The many different restaurants and families from different regions of Italy allowed me to taste some of the most tasty food in the world.

Food always conjures up fantastic memories. When I cook something I haven’t had in a while, it always seems to bring me back to the last time and place I did have it. I reckon it’s the closest thing to a “time machine” we’ll ever experience.

Years ago at every family gathering my Grandmother Theresa made a simple dish of pasta and cauliflower. Oh how we craved for this dish after she was gone. It was filling and tasty and you just could not get enough.

So finally one day I said I was going to try and make it. I just had to have it again. There was just no way was I going to live out the rest of my life without ever eating this dish again. Determined, I tried many times and one day I came as close as I possibly could to recreating her recipe. As we all know Grandmothers did not measure anything, so this was not an simple task.

Here’s my version of my Grandmother’s recipe. I hope you an your family delight in it as much as mine does
