This is a very delicious recipe from my favorite Online Chef so this is not my recipe, but I have changed it. I only changed the water to chicken broth. I would have never thought of using cauliflower and making it into in an Alfredo Sauce. Absolutely delicious!

How to Make Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce with Spaghetti

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook and stir garlic cloves and 2 tbs olive oil in a large pot over medium heat until lightly browned and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Add cauliflower, water, Italian herbs, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper to taste. Bring broth to a boil, cover, and cook until cauliflower is tender, about 10 min.
  2. Meanwhile, combine bread crumbs, 1/3 cup parmesan cheeses, and 1 tbs olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until cheese has melted and mixture is browned, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat, sprinkle with salt to taste, and mix in basil' set aside.
  3. Add cream to cauliflower mixture and puree in the pot with a stick blender or a food processor until smooth and creamy. Stir in 2/3 cup parmesan cheese until melted; season with freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  4. Mix in lemon juice with spaghetti and stir in alfredo sauce to coat pasta. Serve topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and the seasoned bread crumb mixture.
  5. You can use any fresh herb in place of basil, such as thyme, parsley, or oregano. Or just sprig all of them.
    Chef's Note: You can shredded pieces of chicken breast to the Sauce and you can also use White Cheddar Cheese and A piece of Havarti Cheese instead of using Parmesan.
