Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower and Breadcrumbs
Teresa Blackburn

Roasted breadcrumbs are pure genius. They put old bread to new use and add flavor, texture and interest to whatever they grace.

Tossed with fresh herbs and a bit of lemon zest, they add elegance to fish fillets. Used unadorned on a lusty but humble pasta dish, they become “poor man’s Parmesan.”

So before grumpily tossing the remains of that day-old baguette, consider how it might just transform a crummy day into a “crumby” one.

Feeling a bit better now, aren’t we?
