In a large nonstick, deep-sided saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add the onions and saute until just starting to get soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the cauliflower and stir well. Cover and lower the heat, letting the cauliflower steam until almost fork-tender, about 5 minutes.
Remove the cover; raise the heat to medium to evaporate most of the cooking liquid.
Add a splash more olive oil and the garlic and brown over medium-high heat until the cauliflower is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
Add the pasta and toss together to combine.
Add the bread crumbs and cheese and stir well to coat, slightly browning the crumbs, about 2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Add more cheese, if desired.
Serve with crusty Italian bread and butter.
