I was playing around with some recipes, trying to come up with unique ideas for using Ragú® Light Alfredo Sauce, for the Ragú® Recipe Contest Entry that they are running, now through November 30th.
I had some delicious mistakes, let me tell you. I love Alfredo sauce. But of course, it seems a bit indulgent to eat unless it is a true “occasion.” So I decided that if I loaded up the veggies, and got rid of the pasta…it would still hit that Alfredo ‘spot’, and be a healthier meal for any day of the week.
Ragú® makes a Light-Alfredo, which is great. With just 4 grams of fat, and 60 calories in a 1/4 cup, it is a great lower-fat choice in a convenience product.
Here is the recipe, that I know you will enjoy. If you like Alfredo, you will loooove this cheesy, veggie-goodness!
Cauliflower & Feta Alfreo “Mac” & Cheese with #Ragú® Light Parmesan Alfredo
Full of healthy cauliflower and colorful spinach, this decadent tasting "mac" & cheese is an easy weeknight meal!
- 1 16oz. bag of frozen cauliflower
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 1/4 cups crumbled feta cheese
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3/4 cup Ragú® Light Parmesan Alfredo Sauce
- 1 cup washed and chopped baby spinach
Cook the cauliflower according to the package directions, until just tender.
As this cooks, melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Add the breadcrumbs and almonds, and cook until lightly browned. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the raisins, feta, egg, Ragú® Light Parmesan Alfredo , and spinach. Mix.
Drain the cauliflower and add to the mixture in the bowl. Lightly combine until the cheese mixture totally covers the cauliflower.
Put the mixture into a sprayed pan, and top with the toasted crumbs.
Bake at 375* for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly and hot throughout.
