SICILIAN PASTA AND CAULIFLOWER
1 small head of cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup additional olive oil
2 ounces raisins
2 ounces pignolia (pine nuts)
12 ounces thin spaghetti
grated Percorino cheese
fresh basil, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup homemade tomato sauce
Wash and cook the cauliflower in boiling salted water until done, but still firm. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve the water. Break into florets.
Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion, cooking until golden. Cover and cook over low to moderate heat.
Add the cauliflower florets. Rinse and dry the anchovies and heat them in with 1/4 cup olive oil in a small skillet over a low flame - crushing them with a fork.
Add anchovies and oil to the cauliflower. Add raisins and pine nuts. Stir and simmer for a few minutes.
Cook the pasta in the reserved water and drain. Add to the cauliflower mixture. Add the tomato sauce and sprinkle generously with the cheese and chopped basil. Mix well and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 5.
