Once the butter is melted you will add in the diced onion and chopped garlic. Cook these on a low heat until your garlic turns light brown and the onions are slightly translucent. Then add in your vegetables, including broccoli stems (if using), except florets, and cook them all until they are soft. Next comes the creamy cauliflower sauce and your shredded cheese. Stir these until the cheese melts. Add some water from the noodles (quarter cup at a time) as desired to thin your sauce. Keep it on low until your noodles are finished. When your noodles are done you will toss them with the sauce, fresh basil and florets in your skillet. Toss to coat the pasta well. Season everything with salt and pepper to taste and serve it hot with your shredded cheese. Enjoy!

Creamy Cauliflower Sauce Recipe



Creamy Cauliflower Sauce Recipe

Creamy Cauliflower Sauce Recipe


I’ve always been a picky eater. Always. I’ve never cared for some fruits, wild game, and you can forget about vegetables. So obviously, when the whole cauliflower fad was going around, I wasn’t the least bit interested. I saw posts for cauliflower crust, and cauliflower rice. There could have very well been a post for cauliflower ice cream, who knows. All I knew was that to me it was probably the least liked vegetable, so I wanted no part. Then I saw a recipe for a cauliflower cream sauce…that got my attention. As a mom I am constantly trying to trick my kids into eating healthier so they can get the nutriton that I had fought against my whole childhood. I hide vegetables in my spaghetti sauce, so why NOT in a cream sauce too? My kids love it, I love it…it has been a big win all around! I hope you and your family enjoy it as well! I personally love to pair it with some penne pasta and shrimp, but it would go well with anything you would normally pair a cream sauce with.

Total Time: Ten Minutes

Makes: Three Servings


What You Will Need:

1 head of cauliflower (make sure to take off the outer leaves)


How To Make:

First cook your pasta according to the package instructions. While that is cooking, chop up your cauliflower into quarters. Chop off the  florets of the cauliflower and cut your stems into one inch pieces so that it will cook evenly.
Put your chopped cauliflower into a steaming basket and let it steam for about five to ten minutes. you should be able to poke the cauliflower easily with a fork. Take the cauliflower from your basket, and put it in a blender or food processor. Puree your cauliflower until it is nice and smooth. If you want the “sauce” a litter thinner you may add some water. Divide it all into one cup portions. If you are not going to use it right away, freeze it for later use!



* If you don’t have a steaming basket available, you can add your chopped cauliflower directly to boiling water and let it cook for about three to six minutes.
* You can also pre season your sauce before freezing if you’d like. (I’ve included a video that adds a bit more pazazz to this basic recipe)

You knew right away that it was not fresh. Here are some tips that will help you avoid serving fish or seafood that might not just taste bad but could be unhealthy.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip #1 – Go to a reputable store or fishmonger.

This may sound very basic but make sure you are dealing with someone who has a good reputation. Ask your friends and people you work with who they buy there fresh fish and seafood from.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 2 – Ask what is the freshest or check what the catch of the day is.

Again this is a very simple question but one that many people do not think to ask. The people at the store will be able to tell you when they receive their products, what days and times. This will help you know the best time to buy.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 3 – Don’t be misguided by the term “fresh.”

Make sure and ask if the fish has been frozen. For many locations that are some distance from the ocean or bodies of fresh water this could be the case.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 4 – Look for firm, shiny flesh. It should bounce back when touched.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 5 – Sniff the fish.

If you are looking at a really “fresh” fish then it should not have a “fishy” smell. It should however have the smell of a fresh ocean breeze.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 6 – Check the eyes.

The eyes of a fresh fish will be clear without any cloudiness. They should also have a slight bulge to them.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 7 – Check the gills.

If whole, the gills should have a bright pink/red color and should also be wet, not slimy or dry.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 8 – Check cuts of fish.

Fresh fish fillets and steaks should be moist and without discoloration.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 9 – On Fillets and steaks, look for flesh separation and gaps.

When fish is not fresh the meat will separate from itself and is a sign that it is not fresh.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 10 –Look for discoloration

It the fish has any discoloration such as , brown or yellow edges,  and/ or if it has a spongy consistency, these are all signs of aging fish.


These tips will help to insure that the fish you are buying is fresh and give you the best opportunity to enjoy your meal.

As a kid I spent my summers out in Montauk, a small fishing town in Long Island, aboard my family’s fishing boat, the “Jinx.” The fish we caught would end up on our dinner table that same night. If not cooked by my mother, our favorite place to take the fish to be cooked would be “Wok N’ Roll” a great little Chinese restaurant in the middle of town.

Captain Tony Maltese sources a lot of our fish directly from the boats that catch them. The fish go straight from the boat into our stores giving the same quality and freshness he had out in Montauk on your dinner table at home.

Captain Tony’s Tips

With seafood freshness is king
A fresh fish should not smell
Look at the gills, they should have bright red coloring
