Yum! I had some Cilantro and Walnut Pesto in the freezer, so I chopped up some pistachios to toss in with the pasta. Everyone, including those who do not like cauliflower, enjoyed the dish.
I really liked this. After reading reviews that said the garlic was too strong, I roasted 5 cloves still in the skin with the cauliflower and carrots, then added the roasted garlic to the pesto. I also added almost 3/4 of pasta water to thin the pesto. The boys (7 and 10) weren't thrilled, but ate it without complaint.
My husband loved this (as did I). Always trying to get him to eat vegetarian. A good pasta topping always helps. Used a good-quality fusilli as I could not find cavatappi. Also sprinked some Reggiano parmesean, but also tasted great without it.
This was delicious! I subbed angel hair because thats all I had on hand. What a great flavor. The pistachios almost give it a sweetness. I might back off on the garlic slightly since its a raw sauce but we loved this!
Very tasty pasta. It just happened to be what I had in my fridge. It is quick and easy to make with little mess to clean up. The pesto is flavourful and creamy. I added some pasta water to make it more smooth. The pesto maybe had a bit too much garlic. Great meat free meal with big flavours.
