Hidden Veggie Alfredo Sauce

My kids are relatively decent eaters but some days they won’t eat all the veggies on their plate. It’s probably because I serve some type of vegetable at every meal. Like adults though, they get bored too! By the way, if you’re wondering, they will only eat a select number of vegetables so trust me I have some battles too. I’m now hooked after making this hidden veggie alfredo sauce.

I gave this a try thinking it may not turn out so great, but I was so pleasantly surprised. I now personally won’t have alfredo sauce any other way, at least at home anyway. The cauliflower flavor is definitely there so if you have a super picky eater, i suggest blending the floral shaped veggie into regular alfredo sauce.  Give this a try, my family loved it!

Top it on some fettuccini, spaghetti or whatever pasta your pint sized dictator wants! You can even add chicken.
