Fettuccine with light cauliflower-garlic sauce
Perfect fettuccine with light cauliflower-garlic sauce, pea pods, and tuna. Cauliflower replaced the heavy cream in the recipe, which made the meal much lighter, added fiber and protein, and significantly reduced the fat content and total caloric value of the meal. You will surely fall in love with this healthy food!
Excellent in taste and full of vitamins and minerals - pasta can be all this if you prepare it from the right ingredients. Fit cauliflower sauce is great for pasta, and if you haven't tried it yet, be sure to give it a chance. It is deliciously creamy and wonderfully flavorful - especially with the use of baked garlic. However, it is mainly nutrient-dense and, compared to heavy cream, undoubtedly healthier, more satiating, and lighter on the stomach. This relatively low-fat and low-calorie lunch will delight all pasta lovers. Served with peas and tuna, it is truly satiating and irresistible. In addition, this healthy pasta with cauliflower-garlic sauce is also rich in fiber and protein.
Prepare fettuccine, or any other favorite type of pasta, along with this fit cauliflower sauce with garlic - it will definitely be a success!

- 1 tsp of olive oil (I recommend this one)
