Instructions

The Onions:

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the onions, cover the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are deep golden brown.
  • During the cooking, add water as necessary to stop the onions from burning and drying out. You may need as much as ½ cup. Be sure that all of the water is absorbed before removing from the heat. Stir in 1 teaspoon dried thyme.

The Cauliflower:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, toss the cauliflower with olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast until the cauliflower is tender and starting to brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

The Pasta:

  • While the onions and cauliflower are cooking, bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Scoop out and reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water. Drain the pasta.
  • Add the cooked pasta, reserved cooking water, roasted cauliflower, spinach, chickpeas, Parmesan and hazelnuts to the caramelized onions. Stir to combine.
  • Stir in the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
