Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce with Spaghetti

Rhonda E


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!
