About this Recipe

Cauliflower alfredo? Hear me out…

You can absolutely use traditional sauce. However, this version is equally as delicious – I promise – with a nutritious twist! It’s all about what’s best for you in the moment.

Try making this delicious, easy, under-30-minute dinner for the family. You can even do a build-your-own-bowl night, offering pasta, zoodles, and multiple sauce options! I will say, though, this sauce is a must in the rotation.
