This dish is comfort food at its finest. We take bucatini - a thick, spaghetti-like pasta that's actually a hollow tube - and add crispy panko, a brown butter sauce, roasted red peppers, and charred cauliflower. Sit back and relax - you won't want to put this one down.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Turn broiler on high and adjust rack to upper setting in oven. Place a colander in the sink. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Cut any large cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces. Stem and mince parsley. Cut roasted red pepper into ½" dice. Gently crush pistachios in their bag with a pan or rolling pin.

  • Step 2 - Toast the Panko

    Toast the Panko

    Place a medium pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Stir in panko and let toast, stirring continuously, until crumbs are golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside. Lightly wipe out pan and set aside for mustard sauce.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Cauliflower

    Cook the Cauliflower

    Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray. Place cauliflower florets onto baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil and toss to coat evenly. Place cauliflower under broiler and cook 5-8 minutes, until cauliflower is browned, lightly charred, and tender. Remove from broiler and set aside to cool. Don't text and broil! Be sure to watch cauliflower closely so you don't end up blackening the florets.

  • Step 4 - Make Brown Butter Mustard Sauce

    Make Brown Butter Mustard Sauce

    Return pan used to toast panko to medium-high heat and add butter. Cook while stirring or swirling the pan, until butter starts to foam, turns dark tan, and gives off a nutty fragrance. Remove from heat - it will continue to cook from residual heat and turn a deep brown color. Careful, do not blacken butter. Stir in mustard, half the red pepper flakes (to taste– add more if desired), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
