I’m still riding the cauliflower bandwagon like a champ right now. I LOVE cauliflower and I’m finding so many great ways to use it!

This Creamy Cauliflower Cheese Pasta Sauce Recipe is no exception…it’s smooth and velvety and makes a wonderful alternative to traditional Alfredo sauce. Don’t get me wrong it doesn’t taste exactly like Alfredo sauce, but it does taste very good.

So feel free to smother this stuff on everything from pasta to chicken, and even on roasted vegetables (gotta love veggie on veggie action). It’s so healthy and really quite tasty.

In the picture I have posted here, I put it on some Miracle Noodles which didn’t cost me any extra Weight Watchers Points. Truly a great, low calorie sauce for when I want a lot of something really creamy and cheesy, but don’t want all the extra fat, calories and Points to go with it.

  1. Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that
    would be ok. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look
    forward to new updates.

  2. Can you keep it in a container in the fridge and use it over several days?

      Yes, it will stay fresh for about 2 days. Just make sure to give it a good stir to recombine ingredients.

  3. I would really like to know about the Miracle Noodle (pasta) you used. Can you tell me what it is called.
