Cauliflower Alfredo

I have never really cared for cauliflower.  I’ll eat it, but I don’t enjoy it.  In 2011, Geoff and I went on the South Beach Diet and I learned that you could make cauliflower taste just like mashed potatoes!  One night, Geoff suggested that we use our alfredo sauce on the cauliflower.  The result was delicious and I’ve been making this side dish ever since.

1 head of cauliflower

1/2 stick of butter (don’t use margarine)

1 cup of half-n-half

1/2 c to 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (get the kind in the little plastic container found in the cheese section)

salt and pepper to taste

Remove the cauliflower from the stem and break apart.  Place in a microwaveable bowl, cover, and cook about 6-8 minutes until tender.

While the cauliflower is cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan.  Add the 1/2 and 1/2, cheese, and salt and pepper.  Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly so that it won’t burn.  Sauce should thicken slightly
