Garlic Cauliflower Linguine

A simple pasta dish is all I need for an elegant meal.  For some reason, linguine has been calling my name lately.  It’s my go-to pasta when I want to create a dish that is just a little more special than your regular noodles with marinara.  Toss it with some some homemade garlic olive oil, lemon juice, and capers, and this Garlic Cauliflower Linguine is my answer to what to serve for New Year’s Eve!
