Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

I never thought I could make such delicious sauces out of such little ingredients! There are only 8 ingredients to this recipe (9 if you count the black pepper), & it was great! I always try to use different sauces for pasta & this one was a great change of pace.

I also never knew how versatile cauliflower could be! After citrus fruits, cauliflower is your next best natural source of vitamin C, an antioxidant vitamin with wide-ranging benefits including defending blood vessels from damage & lowering the risk of high blood pressure.

I served my Creamy Cauliflower Sauce over Spaghetti Squash with steamed spinach & broccoli, & Sean ate Brown Rice Penne with his ❤
