This One Pot Cauliflower Piccata Pasta has all the flavors of your favorite piccata dish in a quick and easy meatless meal.
I have always loved the flavors of piccata with the lemon, butter, and salty capers but sometimes I just don't have it in me to pound out the chicken or eggplant, bread everything, lightly fry it, and make the sauce. Even though its a fairly quick meal, it's pretty labor intensive. So lately I have been experimenting with bringing the flavors or piccata to a quick and easy pasta dish like this One Pot Cauliflower Piccata Pasta. Everything is cooked in one pot and the starch from the pasta water creates a creamy sauce when combined with the Parmesan cheese. The capers and lemon bring the bright and salty flavors you expect out of a traditional piccata dish and the parsley brings some freshness. You could also add chicken breast or chicken thighs, just brown chunks of chicken with the garlic and shallot and let the chicken cook with pasta. Easy and delicious.
