A while back we asked you what recipes you wanted to learn how to make healthier versions of. One of the top requests was pasta with a creamy sauce.
Cauliflower, which once was the most uninteresting vegetable, has become the most versatile. It’s been used to make pizza bases and now to create a delicious creamy pasta sauce. This creamy cauliflower Alfredo pasta is made by blending cooked cauliflower with nutritional yeast and almond milk to mimic a dairy based cream sauce. We added mushrooms and fresh basil, but if mushrooms aren’t your jam, you can add roasted peppers, tomatoes, peas or enjoy it plain.
You can use any pasta you like. If you’ll be using a gluten free or low-carb pasta (Atkins makes a great one), but note that the sauce won’t stick to it and coat it the same way it does with regular pasta. Nonetheless it’ll still work and taste great.
