You guysssss. THIS SAUCE. I could hardly stop myself from devouring it before snapping photos and I’m so excited to share it with you!
It kind of reminds of those times when you find the perfect shirt in the perfect color in the perfect size and it’s 75% off. Or when you’re in a hurry and you find that perfect parking spot right by the door.
You know…those sweet moments that just make you say “Yessss!” and want to do a happy dance.
This sauce is ridiculously easy and fast, creamy, incredibly flavorful from the roasted garlic and rosemary, and it might just have a healthy twist that I promise you won’t even notice!
It’s a win all the way around.
Don’t you just want to dig your fork in RIGHT NOW?
After the process of putting this post together, I was craving this so much I made it again last night!
I hope I’ve hyped this recipe enough because 1) it completely deserves to be hyped 2) it will live up to the hype (have I mentioned I LOVE it?) and 3) I’m about to tell you what makes it so healthy and I don’t want you to miss the sauce for the ingredients.
This sauce is actually made with cauliflower (cue gasps & eyebrow raises) but stick with me. Cauliflower is a chameleon of a vegetable and it takes on the essence of whatever dish its in. It also happens to, well, not have a lot of flavor so we inject it with some roasted garlic and rosemary. We also might just add a little cheese for good measure and we end up with an Alfredo-esque sauce without the calories and food coma. Jackpot!
