I LOVE pasta. I have ALWAYS loved pasta. I love the rich flavors, the luscious textures, and gorgeous smells.
…I hate that I can’t eat pasta
As a healthy eater, pasta just isn’t an option for me.
I have zero self-control. Even if I buy the “healthy” brands of pasta (Ezekiel brand is really great), one serving just doesn’t cut it for me. I always feel unsatisfied
Restaurant pastas are loaded with fat, refined carbohydrates, and excessive calories…I’m just not into that
I hate that crash I have after eating a huge italian meal. When you eat all of those white carbs, your blood sugar shoots up and then quickly crashes… it makes you feel crappy and tired.
I love creamy sauces… they also happen to be the WORST choice for you… ugh
Tonight…I wanted Pasta….
so I had it…and it was GLORIOUS 🙂
If you don’t have one of these guys… NO PROBLEM!!! use: spaghetti squash, your favorite pasta, steamed vegetables, quinoa etc. this sauce is awesome on anything and everything 🙂
Guilt Free Alfredo Sauce
- half ahead of cauliflower (about 2 cups)
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1 garlic clove chopped
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1/4 cup cheese of choice (I used Galaxy brand cheddar)
- 3 tbs parmesan cheese (I used nutritional yeast flakes)
- salt and pepper to taste ( about 1/2 tsp salt—you can always add more)
- optional—-fresh rosemary
- Combineall ingredients in a pot and boil until califlower is soft. Pour everythinginto a blender and blend on high.
**BE careful, it is going to be really hot…you don’t want it to explode in your blender!! Perhaps wait a few minutes until you start blending.
Pour sauce over pasta, add any veggies and ENJOY!!!
My toppings: Spinach, mushroom, artichoke, red pepper, 1 cup of shrimp and 1/4 cup quinoa.
