On a Budget: Penne Rigate with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

The cauliflower was on sale again. It seems that every other week the cauliflower is on sale lately ;) Luckily the vegetable is very versatile and there are a lot of different things that can be made using cauliflower. I was looking of the 24-Kitchen website for inspiration this time and came across this easy pasta dish. For me a dish is budget if I can make it for 5 euro or less per day for the two of us. Because I could afford it within that budget to actually buy percorino, instead of a cheaper grated cheese, we went with that. But feel free to substitute for another cheese.

Penne Rigate with Cauliflower and Tomatoes (serves 4)
- 300 gr penne rigate
- 1 spring onion, in rings
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- olive oil
- a bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
- 400 gr cubed tomatoes (canned)
- 1 cauliflower
- 75 gr pecorino, whole

Boil the pasta and steam the cauliflower. Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a pan and saute onion and garlic for about 2 minutes. Add the parsley and warm through. Add the tomatoes and let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes. Add some pepper to taste. When the pasta is done, drain it and add to the sauce together with the cauliflower. Grate the pecorino on top before serving.
