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!
