Baked Pasta with Cauliflower and Raisin

I know it doesn’t sound very appetizing but it is really good. This is actually my favorite dish growing up. I must have grown up in a weird family if you can sell this cauliflower and raisins dish to a kid and make them loving it. 

You’ll need:

·       1 white cauliflower

·       Half white onion

·       2 Anchovies

·       250 ml of Tomato Sauce

·       Some raisins

·       A small bag of pinenut

·       500 gr of pasta

·       Extra virgin olive oil

·       Salt, pepper to taste

·       Mozzarella

·       Parmesan cheese

Start by cooking the cauliflower in abundant water, which you will use later to cook the pasta. Once the cauliflower is tender, drain it. In a frying pan, start heating some olive oil and the anchovies. Once the anchovies have dissolved add the chopped onion. After 10 minutes add the cauliflower.

Put the dried raisin in some water until it is has softened up. Add the tomato sauce to the pan, then the raisin and the pinenut. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the pasta in the cauliflower water al dente!. Mix the pasta with the sauce. Add some chunks of mozzarella and pour it into a big baking shape.  Sprinkle some parmesan cheese over and bake it for 30 minutes at 180°C.
