Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente.
Break cauliflower into florets and steam until tender.
Heat some of the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add onion and saute until golden. Add garlic and cook until golden brown. Stir in cauliflower and seasonings.
Drain pasta, and transfer to a large serving bowl. Toss with onion and cauliflower mixture and top with cheese.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
