  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. In a baking tray place the cauliflower and spinach, toss with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Remove from the oven and drain the remaining olive oil. Keep it aside.
  4. Cook your pasta in boiling salt water as instructed on the pack.
  5. Once it is cooked, drain but retain about half a cup or so of cooking water.
  6. In a pan, heat the olive oil from the oven and add some more. Once the oil is slightly hot, add the garlic and chilli.
  7. Sauté for just a minute or so before adding the pasta, cauliflower and spinach.
  8. Toss in the pan, add the cooking water, parmesan and butter, and a little lemon juice. Combine everything well. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
