Cauliflower & Spinach Pasta twists

One evening a while back, I had about one hour to make dinner for the family—and eat—between getting home from one activity and going out to another.

This was the result; everyone liked this simple dish so much that I set down a recipe for it, and have followed it many times since. Serve with a salad of fresh greens and tomatoes (toss in some beans and chickpeas for extra protein), fresh bread, and your favorite wine. Photos by Evan Atlas.
