Roasted Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce + Spinach Cauliflower Alfredo Lasagna Rolls

For this week’s #InstaWeanTeam challenge, we’re featuring cauliflower! Cauliflower is known for its excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and cancer fighting properties. It contain compounds called isothiocyanates which inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

There are so many ways to use cauliflower and I couldn’t think of just one way. The past week Nathan has been quite sensitive to dairy milk, but cheeses he can handle. We haven’t had pasta in a while, so I decided to make lasagna rolls.
