This easy roasted broccoflower pasta recipe is packed with tender-crisp vegetables. Tip: Substitute store-bought farfalle if you're short on time.


  • 340 g broccoflower or Romanesco , cut into florets (about 5 cups)
  • 6 shallots , quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 1 batch Homemade egg pasta , cut into farfalle
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp saltes butter
  • 1 1/2 cups finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese , divided
  • 1 cup frozen peas , thawed


  • Make Homemade Egg Pasta Dough, and roll according to instructions below.
  • Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 450F. Toss broccoflower and shallots with olive oil and salt on a baking sheet. Season with pepper. Spread vegetables in one layer. Roast until edges are golden, 10 to 12 min.
  • Arrange prosciutto in one layer on another sheet. Bake until crisp, 2 to 4 min. Remove and set aside.
  • Cook farfalle in boiling water until al dente, 3 to 5 min. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain and
    set aside.
  • Add broth, butter and pasta water to same pasta pot. Boil, then reduce heat to medium. Add 1 cup cheese, 1⁄4 cup at a time, stirring after each addition. (If you add too much at once, cheese may separate.) Stir until smooth and thickened. Season with pepper.
  • Stir in peas, pasta, broccoflower and shallots until coated. Divide into bowls. Crumble prosciutto and sprinkle over pasta with remaining cheese.

How To Roll Farfalle

  • Dust a rimmed baking sheet with semolina. If rolling by hand, divide full batch of dough into 4 pieces and form each into a square. On a floured counter, use a rolling pin to roll into 1-mm-thick squares.
  • If using a pasta roller, divide full batch of dough into 6 parts. Laminate and roll the dough at thickest setting, 2 or 3 times. Continue rolling dough through machine while reducing size setting until you reach 1-mm.
  • Cut pasta sheet lengthwise into 1-in.-wide strips. Using a pastry cutter, cut strips into 2-in.-wide pieces. Pinch top and bottom of each rectangle to make a butterfly shape. Transfer to prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
