‘Tis the season for pumpkin recipes so I wouldn’t be doing my job as a food blogger unless I created a pumpkin themed recipe for fall.

Pumpkin Sweet Potato Alfredo Sauce is not as heavy as a traditional Alfredo sauce, which is typically made with Parmesan cheese, butter and heavy cream.

Mac and Cheese in Cauliflower Sauce is so incredibly rich and creamy, you’ll be hard-pressed to believe that the sauce is made mostly from vegetables! This dish, for the most part, gets its fabulous taste and texture from cauliflower that has been pureed along with vegetable stock. There’s still plenty of cheese is this recipe – it is, after all, mac and cheese – but not as much milk/cream as a traditional mac and cheese, and no flour. I’ve kept this delicious casserole gluten-free by using red lentil pasta and gluten-free bread crumbs. Mac and Cheese in Cauliflower Sauce is so delicious and easy to make that I doubt I’ll ever make traditional mac and cheese again! (more…)
