- Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in middle position.
- Cut cauliflower into 1-inch pieces and toss on a 4-sided baking sheet with 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Roast in oven, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is browned in spots and tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
- Cook garlic, raisins, and capers in remaining 6 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, until garlic is golden. Stir in vinegar and cauliflower.
- Boil pasta in well-salted water until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta then toss with cauliflower mixture, parsley, cheese, and then thin as desired with pasta cooking water.
