Cauliflower & Feta Alfredo “Mac” & Cheese with #Ragú® Light Alfredo

 

Cauliflower & Feta "Mac" & CheeseI 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.
