Stovetop Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce with Fettuccine

25-minute recipe Serves 4-6
This classic Alfredo recipe comes with a delicious twist—nutrient-rich cauliflower paired with white cheddar cheese. The result is a creamy cauliflower Alfredo sauce even the pickiest eaters can’t say no to. Serve this weeknight vegetarian dinner as is, or for bigger (meatier) appetites, add in cooked or shredded rotisserie chicken.

Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 15 mins
  • 1

    Melt butter in a medium-size pot over medium heat; add onion and garlic and cook, stirring until softened, 5-7 minutes.

  • 2

    Add cauliflower, milk and salt and bring to a simmer. Cook covered until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes.

  • 3

    Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions. Remove 1 cup of pasta water before draining. Reserve.

  • 4

    Transfer cauliflower mixture and cheese to a blender and blitz until smooth. Scrape back into the pot and add drained pasta.

  • 5

    Toss in the pasta and some of the reserved pasta cooking liquid to loosen up the mixture, if needed. Serve with more grated cheddar, if desired, with pepper and parsley, chives or green onion.

    Tip: Make this dish dairy-free by substituting the milk for vegetable broth or your favourite non-dairy liquid and the cheddar cheese with an equally delicious dairy-free alternative.
