I really love pasta and love finding creative ways to make different sauces to change up the flavor. Cauliflower Alfredo is one of my favorites. There are a few variations out there, but not all of them are MS approved, i.e. make sure to avoid vegan butter at all costs. Pasta is one thing that I do buy that is processed (I have not gone down the lane of making my own pasta...yet ;)), but I make sure to buy whole wheat or whole grain. Gluten-free can also be substituted, I am not such a fan of corn based gluten-free pasta because it tastes too much like corn tortillas to me. This sauce is also great with cooked quinoa or brown rice.
Cauliflower Alfredo is a great way to make sure you are getting your cruciferous vegetable in for the day. You can click here to find the original recipe that inspired the following:

*I really like adding the nutritional yeast to this, but it also works without it.
* Blending a 1:1 ratio of raw nuts and water makes a very nice 'cream' that can be added to any sauce to give it a creamy consistency and flavor.
