Fare Isle’s Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Leek & Chickpea Pasta

I know it’s January and we’re all supposed to cleansing and fasting but 2018 started out with two solid weeks of below 0˚F temps and I’m not about to deprive myself of the cozy carby goodness that is pasta (I’m with you on this! – Alicia :) ).  I just can’t get down with that no-carb life. So if you, too, are all about comforting winter meals then this post is for you!

1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
