In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 5 min. Add cauliflower to pasta. Continue to cook pasta and cauliflower 7 to 8 more min or until pasta is al dente and cauliflower is very tender.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour, salt and cayenne; whisking about 1 min. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Whisk 3 to 5 min or until smooth and thickened.

Drain pasta and cauliflower and return to pot. Pour in sauce; stir about 2 min over medium heat to coat pasta. Stir in Parmesan, lemon zest and juice, capers and parsley. Serve with Parmesan.

Tips

This dish tastes best when cauliflower is very tender.  It’s an ideal recipe to introduce your kids to cauliflower.

Add leftover grilled chicken. Substitute small shell-shaped pasta for orecchiette.
