  • 0 1/8 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1 tbsp PARSLEY Adams Extract Co.
  • 0 1/2 tsp SALT Morton Salt, Inc.
  • 8 oz Cheese, Cabot Private Stock Vermont Cheddar
  • 14 oz Shirataki Noodles, konjac yam

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions by boiling for 5 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water, transfer to a large bowl and set aside.  Cube or shred the cheese and set aside.
  2. Cook chopped cauliflower in lightly salted boiling water until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water. Add to pasta and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together cream, water and thickener. Cook, whisking frequently, until mixture simmers and thickens, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg and stir until cheese is melted. Fold in pasta and cauliflower. Cook, stirring gently, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Cooking Tip

Shirataki noodles come in a variety of shapes.  If you can only find the spaghetti style consider chopping with a knife or pair of scissors before combining with the cauliflower.
