Raid the Frig dinner!
It was one of those days. We had a "dump" dinner. Whatever I had in the vegetable drawer, was dumped on a baking sheet and roasted. Mixed in with some pasta and some ricotta cheese. Makes a quick, easy dish. We had ours with grilled French-style sausage. The kids had theirs with meatballs from the freezer. Anything goes in a dump dinner :) This one had roasted cauliflower, grape tomatoes, shallots, garlic and white mushrooms. Reserve some pasta water to mix in to thin out the ricotta a bit.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss cauliflower, shallots, garlic and whatever other vegetables you like with about 3 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast about 25 minutes or so, until lightly browned and tender, tossing them once after 15 minutes.
