Pour some olive oil into a pot full of hot water. Add a dash of salt and a cup of pasta to the pot and bring to boil. Meanwhile, cut some cauliflower florets, wash, drain and boil in a separate pot. Once both are boiled, drain them and keep them aside.
Marinate the chicken with salt and pepper. In a pan, pour some olive oil and place the marinated chicken breasts.
Meanwhile, in another pan, add minced garlic to heated oil and saute until aromatic. Spice it up with salt, pepper, chili flakes, oregano, and white pepper. Mix them well. At this point, if you wish, you can add sliced mushrooms to enhance the flavor. While the mushrooms saute, switch to make the sauce
Here is where the magic happens – in a blender add the boiled florets and blend until smooth. Add water to the cauliflower if needed. Pour this cauliflower paste into the pan and mix well with the spices. If you want a hint of cheese, you may add low-fat cheese. Once the sauce thickens, add pasta to it and fold carefully.
Serve in a bowl, sprinkle a dash of oregano and chili flakes. Enjoy!
