Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.
- Prepare the vegetables: Coarsely chop the onion and cut the cauliflower into small pieces (about 2 cm).
- Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min with stirring.
- Remove the skin from the sausage, then add the meat to the pan. Break up the meat using a wooden spoon and cook 4-5 min until it looses its pink colour. Add the chili pepper (if the sausage is not already spiced). Pour in the warm broth and stir in the cauliflower. Bring to a boil then lower the heat.
- Cover and simmer 10 min until the cauliflower is cooked al dente and the broth is almost completely absorbed (the sauce should still be moist).
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta.
- Drain the pasta then pour it into the frying pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the grated cheese then toss well. Serve in the warmed dishes.
