Cheesy Curried Cauliflower Pasta: Ooey Gooey delicious and creamy one-pot recipe with a hint of curry. It’s a family favorite and a great hit with kids.
It’s Meatless Monday and I’m here with my Curried Cauliflower Pasta recipe for you’ll.
It’s one of those dishes that came into existence accidentally about 3 years ago and immediately became a family favorite.
It’s a mild curry flavored pasta cooked along with sauteed cauliflower and lots of cheese.
If you haven’t tried this combination, then it should be in your must-try dishes list.
It’s the grated cauliflower with cheese that makes it so creamy and gives you a feeling of eating a light alfredo sauce pasta but without the calories – Yipeeee 😉
As I mentioned above, the existence of Curried Cauliflower Pasta was accidental.
I was making cauliflower pasta and ended up adding curry powder instead of the regular Italian seasoning and served it to a group of friends.
The first gulp and they were all over the pasta, everyone loved it and wanted the recipe….which was quite surprising as I had not tasted the pasta yet and I thought they were pulling my leg.
Once I tasted a spoonful, I realized what just happened but since everyone loved it, I was relieved …….Phewww!
So recipe got exchanged and the pasta was made and remade along with a different combination of veggies but this particular combination is what still remains a HIT with everyone including children.
This Cheesy Curried Cauliflower Pasta has been featuring as an entree in many of our get-togethers ever since.
It’s also one of those recipes, that can be made in advance and kept in the fridge and eaten next day cause it tastes even better as the cauliflower curry sauce has mixed well with the pasta.
You can definitely add more vegetables or cheese as per your taste to this Cheesy Curried Cauliflower Pasta.
It’s a hit among kids as well cause the grated cauliflower feels like a textured cheese sauce to them and I’ve seen bowl’s getting empty really soon when this get served 🙂
