Cook the penne and reserve a ladlefood of pasta cooking water. Also cook a small head of cauliflower in salted water for 8-10 minutes. Marinate seafood of your choice (I used shrimps and scallops) in a mixture vinegar, bay leaves, cloves, mustard, paprika, cardamom and ginger.
Meanwhile, melt 5-6 anchovy fillets in a large skillet covered with olive oil. Then add a few chopped vegetables (one hot chili pepper, one red pepper, few celery ribs, one onion and 3-4 cloves garlic). Season with salt and pepper and chopped oregano then add the reserved pasta water, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, juice of one lemon, the pasta and cauliflower.
Finally, cook the marinated seafood in another skillet covered with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add 1/3 cup of vermouth and let boil, then simmer.
Add the seafood mixture to the pasta et voila! Enjoy :)
