This pasta sauce is so velvety smooth, thick, and luscious and is perfect for any night of the week. You would ever even guess the main ingredient is cauliflower!

I’m pretty sure the best way to sneak some veggies into anyone’s diet is to pair them with a nice big bowl of pasta. I like to call cauliflower the chameleon of the veggie group because it literally takes on any flavor you pair it with. That’s why when you add nutritional yeast, sauteed onions, and garlic to the mix, you get this delicious creamy sauce that tastes just like Alfredo sauce.

Nutritional yeast is that nutritious (duhh) yellow flaky seasoning that gives everything it touches a nice “cheesy” flavor. It’s kinda my bestie. Other things I’ve used it in - Salmon Mac & Cheese, “Cheesy” Popcorn, and this Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato.

I’m just going to be honest with you here - this cauliflower sauce brings me LIFE. I’m a firm believer in switching things up in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and finding sauces you can throw into the mix is a game changer! Not to mention the alfredo-style vibes that bring me back to my fettuccine alfredo with shrimp days. I’m thinking everyone in the family is going to love this one!
