    I Remember Nonna

    ...one of my Italian grandmother's most asked-for recipes: cauliflower sauce. Fresh tomatoes, anchovies, garlic, 2 red chilis, medium cauliflower and parsley on DeCecco linguine with a generous sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan...tangy, filling and satisfying lunch.

    ...mostly vegetarian sauces except in winter when her homemade Italian spicy sausage featured in the popular broccoli/sausage linguine and, of course, meatballs in tomato sauce over shells...I do miss Nonna's kitchen...

    Great stuff TC. Going to have some of Nonna's sauce tomorrow.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    ...the full recipe:

    What you need:

    6 medium-sized red tomatoes (may vary according to taste)
    6 cloves garlic
    2-3 anchovies in oil
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 medium cauliflower (chopped)
    2 red chilis (with an incision made from top to bottom, but otherwise intact)
    1/4 cup EVOO

    What you do:

    Skin (in hot water) and quarter the tomatoes. Toss into a blender with salt and pepper. Heat oil over medium heat, add garlic and anchovies. When garlic has lightly browned and anchovies disintegrated, add tomatoes and chilis. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and partially cover. Cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to check for consistency. Add chopped cauliflower, mix well and return to a partially covered simmer for another 10-15 minutes (stirring occasionally) or until cauliflower reaches desired tenderness. Remove chilis and let sauce rest while you boil the linguine. Drain pasta and toss in a large bowl with a little EVOO. Pour sauce over pasta, toss, add parsley and serve with freshly grated parmesan.

    Mangia!
