Sicilian Pasta with Cauliflower

Based on a traditional Sicilian pasta dish, this simple meal is filled with wonderful flavors and textures. The cauliflower is cooked until very tender so it becomes part of the sauce that coats the pasta. Raisins offer a sweet contrast to the saltiness from the Parmesan cheese.
