Garlicky Pasta with Cauliflower & Peas

Super delicious and comforting, this Garlicky Pasta with Cauliflower & Peas is just the right winter carb. We chose Fusilli for this dish because of its spiral/ textured shape which helps the pasta to better hold onto the sauce with its simple yet flavourful ingredients.

Prepare it for a heartwarming dinner then take leftovers (if any are left!) into your lunchbox the next day. It is a filling meal in a bowl.


  • 200 gram pasta (half a pack) - معكرونة
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced) - فصوص ثوم
  • 1/4 cup peas - بسلة
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower (small florets) - قرنبيط
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • handful parsley (finely chopped) - بقدونس
  • a drizzle cooking cream (optional) - كريم الطهي
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese - جبنة بارميزان

Step by step

  1. Place pasta in a medium pot and cover with hot water. Bring it to a boil then bring heat down to medium/low and let it simmer until cooked through.
  2. In the meantime, heat olive oil and butter in a large pan. Sauté garlic for a couple minutes.
  3. Add peas and cauliflower florets. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  4. Use a ladle to transfer about half cup water from the pasta to the vegetables. Let it come to a simmer, lower heat and cover until cooked through (about 10 minutes).
  5. Drain cooked pasta and add it to the vegetables. Drizzle cooking cream if using any. Stir and adjust seasoning.
  6. Sprinkle chopped parsley and take it off the heat. Serve in a pasta bowl sprinkled with grated cheese.
