On Saturday night, I asked Husband to make an Alfredo sauce for zucchini noodles because I’d been really wanting to eat it again since having some at our friends’ house a while back. He found this recipe for cashew Alfredo sauce and it turned out AMAZING. So I made him take a photo so I could share it with all of you great people for Meatless Monday. YUM! Enjoy!
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. Happy eating!
