Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce Pasta

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce Pasta is a healthier and pleasant change to the otherwise heavier butter and flour based Alfredo sauce Pasta.

The Authentic Alfredo sauce made out of Butter Cheese, flour and Heavy cream. It is delicious but very heavy and fattening. This recipe is perfect alternative and delicious and healthy too. 

Try replacing the veggies as you like it, I like it with spinach and asparagus, and the kids also like it like these. You can instead add some zucchini, or peppers, and it will taste equally good, it will be your version of pasta, and will definitely be good.
