Alfredo sauce is a lovely thing if you aren’t cautious about your fat intake. Heavy on the cream, butter and cheese, it is definitely not health food. So I was thrilled and surprised to see THIS post on cauliflower Alfredo sauce from Heather at Sugar Dish Me. Could it be true???
Well, I’m here to tell you, not only is it true, it’s truly delicious!
We made a delicious pasta with spinach fettuccine from Melina’s Pasta, organic mushrooms and leftover pork from a previous dinner. It was so good–no overt cauliflower flavor–just creamy loveliness that coated the pasta nicely. And unlike a true Alfredo sauce, this is just 30 calories per 1/2 cup serving. I took leftovers for lunch and it was just as good the next day. This sauce would be great in rice dishes as well.
HERE is the link to the original recipe from fellow blogger Pinch of Yum. You have to read her post about this sauce–it is funny and educational! We have nicknamed this sauce Faux-fredo sauce and it is going into the regular rotation!
We mixed this sauce with sautéed mushrooms, onions and leftover grilled pork and served it over some of our local spinach fettuccine from Melina’s Pasta. Great dinner and great leftovers for lunch!
