Do you want a savory fettuccine alfredo recipe that doesn't have all the calories and fat?  If so, this healthy fettuccine recipe uses pureed cauliflower as a faux-creamy base instead of all the unhealthy cream and butter that you'll see in other recipes.  I normally cook for a very picky eater every night who hates cauliflower.  He absolutely LOVES this recipe and still doesn't know it's made with a vegetable that he absolutely hates. He even went back for seconds!

I'm going to keep this secret for as long as I can.  I hope you like this recipe!

Step 1: What You'll Need:

1 pound Fettuccine
4 cups Cauliflower (cut into large chunks)
2 cup Milk
2 tablespoons Butter
2 large Shallots (finely minced)
1/2 cup White Wine
1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano (freshly grated)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 cup Parsley (chopped)
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Nice way to have children eat their veggies!
Ohhh, this looks good!!!
This looks really good. Obviously if your picky eater is going for seconds it must taste pretty good, but how does it compare to normal? I would love to try this if I can convince the wife to try it. Unfortunately she wont eat anything unless she knows what it is and I cant exactly keep her out of the kitchen :)
Thanks for your comment kinderdm...tell your wife it tastes EXACTLY like regular fettuccine alfredo! I'd be shocked if you can tell that it's cauliflower. Please let me know how it goes!
