  1. Add the cauliflower to a steamer basket set over a medium pot of boiling water. Cover and steam for 10 minutes, or until fork-tender.
  2. Place the steamed cauliflower onto a clean dish towel and press out any excess water into a separate bowl.
  3. Transfer the squeezed cauliflower to a food processor and add the flour, salt, and olive oil. Pulse the ingredients until a dough ball forms.
  4. Move the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for 3-4 minutes, or until it springs back when poked.
  5. Shape the dough into a ball and divide it into 4 equal pieces.
  6. Working with one piece at a time, cut it in half again and then roll it out into a 6-inch (3-cm) long and 1-inch (2-cm) wide rope. Cut each rope into .5-inch (1-cm) pieces.
  7. Roll each piece along the back of a fork to create a pattern of lines.
  8. Boil a large pot of salted water and cook the gnocchi until they float to the surface, typically 3-5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the water.
  9. Toss the cooked gnocchi with pesto sauce and serve immediately.
  10. Enjoy!
