Keto Cauliflower Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Truth be told, I wasn't expecting much from this recipe. When I think alfredo, I think linguini and so the thought of cauliflower replacing that had me discouraged. That being said, I was wrong! Not only was the recipe delicious but the cauliflower had me feeling full and did the trick as a carb replacement. Next time I am going to try it and add in some zucchini noodles. Overall, this one gets two thumbs up! INGREDIENTS 5 1 ⁄3 oz.  bacon, diced 20 oz.  chicken breasts 4  garlic cloves 1½ oz.  butter 7 oz.  fresh spinach salt and pepper 1½ cups  heavy whipping cream 20 oz.  cauliflower 3½ oz.  grated parmesan cheese DIRECTIONS Fry the bacon until crispy and cooked through. Drain, and set aside in a bowl or on a plate. Cut the chicken breasts into strips. Add butter in the same frying pan with the remaining bacon fat and sauté the chicken and garlic. Set aside when the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Sauté the spinach until it shrinks, but no more.
