Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 6: 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) mild, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) medium and 1 tsp (2 tsp) spicy! Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (whole onion for 4 ppl).

Cook cauliflower

Add cauliflower and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to an unlined baking sheet. Season with half the garlic salt and pepper, then toss to coat.Roast in the middle of the oven, until golden-brown, 14-16 min.

Cook rigatoni

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions soften, 3-4 min. Sprinkle Cream Sauce Spice Blend and remaining garlic salt over onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions are coated, 1 min. Add cream and 1/2 cup (1 cup) milk, then bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens, 1 min. Remove from heat, then add spinach. Stir until wilted, 1 min.
