Single Girl Dinner #1 - Vodka Tomato Sauce on Roasted Cauliflower

Last year when my husband was away at school for five months, I would often find myself having a "single girl dinner" aka something I would never cook for my man because I know he wouldn't go near it with a 10 foot pole!

So if you find yourself in the mood for something truly delicious and are cooking for 1, this is the perfect dinner!

Vodka Tomato Sauce (from Giada- love her!)

1 can plain tomato sauce
3/4 cup vodka (yeah girl!!)
1/2 cup heavy cream (at room temperature)

1) Combine tomato sauce and vodka in a sauce pan and cook on medium low heat for 20 minutes
2) Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream
3) DONE (so easy and yet so tasty)

Roasted Cauliflower

Head of cauliflower (if you have extras this is a great lunch so don't worry)
Olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped capers
Parmesan Cheese
1/3 cup breadcrumbs

1) Heat oven to 400 degrees
2) Chop cauliflower into bite size pieces and toss with oil and capers in a roasting pan
3) Put in the preheated oven and let cook about 10 minutes
4) Remove from the oven and stir to mix up the veggies
5) Top with breadcrumbs and cheese and put back in the oven for another 10 minutes

Put sauce on cauliflower and pour yourself a glass of wine :)
