Fire up the grill for a cauliflower pasta that will complement any cookout. Lightly charring the cauliflower on the grill adds wonderful smoky flavor and gives the dish a truly satisfying texture. If the slats on your barbecue grill are large, use a grilling basket.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high heat; grease grate well. Toss together cauliflower, oil, thyme, smoked paprika, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Grill, turning occasionally, for 8 to 12 minutes or until tender and lightly charred.
Stir tahini paste, gradually adding lemon juice and water until smooth. Stir in garlic, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne.
In large bowl, combine pasta and cauliflower; toss with dressing. Stir in tomatoes, onion and parsley. Serve with lemon wedges. Add chopped cucumbers and olives to salad if desired.
