Zucchini Pasta with Cauliflower Alfredo

Because it would be defeating the purpose to use regular Alfredo Sauce on Zucchini, this sauce made from Cauliflower makes more sense!,,,and it makes this a guilt-free pleasure!,,,,I steamed cauliflower flowerettes then blended it,,,I added 2% milk, but you could also use fat free half and half....seasoned with garlic and parmesan cheese to give it flavor, I thought this was a great healthy alternative to a dish that is usually very high in fat and calories!!,,,,Here is what I did....Enjoy!!

3-4 large Zucchini (Spiral Cut)
1 head of Cauliflower Flowerettes
1 1/2-2 Cups Milk
1 T Butter
2-3 cloves Garlic Minced
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
salt and pepper
1.Steam your cauliflower flowerettes until tender,,,let cool and add to your blender
add 1 1/2 cups milk and blend until creamy add more milk if needed
2. In a saucepan melt 1 Tablespoon of butter add 2-3 cloves minced garlic cook 1 minute
3. Add cauliflower mixture to pan and stir.... add parmesan cheese...you can still add a little milk if it is too thick,,,,add salt and pepper to sauce
4.Add spiral cut zucchini to a pan and saute until tender,,,you can add olive oil if needed
add salt and pepper,,,,when done top with sauce you can add more parmesan cheese to servings and more salt and pepper if needed
(You can also doctor this sauce up with any other seasonings you may like)
