I was on Facebook and this post popped up showing Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo. l I’ve been thinking about making a white sauce for spaghetti squash for while. I went to check out Lindsay’s post and I was intrigued by her idea of creating a white sauce with cauliflower being the base.
I thought about making her recipe and just trading out the pasta with spaghetti squash, but I ended up making a few more alterations to suit my diet. I needed to get some more protein in the recipe plus I made my recipe make fewer servings as I will probably be the only one eating this in my household.
This turned out amazing! I will have to try using cauliflower for some more sauces, the flavor was so slight I didn’t even notice it. My sauce turned out pretty garlicky, so I changed the name of my recipe, but I love garlic! I did have one follower on Facebook ask if you could taste the greek yogurt. Yes there is a bit of tang to it. If that bothers you can cut the greek yogurt back to 2 tablespoons and consider adding 2 tablespoons of heavy cream.
