    I like the idea of getting more veggies in my family this way!

    Ok I have to say it, you mention the high carbs in pasta, but then your recipe calls for flour which is also carbs. If you're really going for low carb I suggest replacing that flour with arrow root or xanthan gum.

    Hehe, there's always one in every crowd, right..

    there are 86 grams of carbs in a serving of spaghetti

    there are 95 grams of carbs in 1 cup of flour- (16 tbs) 95/16 = 5.9gm

    there are 3 Tbs in the entire recipe- which is 17 grams of carbs. Divided by 8 Servings which equals 2.22 grams of carbs per serving.

    I think that's still considered Low Carb, by any standard.

    Arrow root powder actually has 113 grams of carbs per cup, which is considerably more than flour. Xanthan gum is a largely indigestible polysaccharide.

    I tried the recipe tonight and the sauce wasn't creamy at all. I thought I followed directions exactly. Well, except one head of cauliflower was only 4 cups not 8. Luckily I had some California Mix veg in the freezer so I threw that in to boil too. It was delish ... if I can just figure out why the sauce was grainy.

    Graininess happens when you cook with the heat set too high. It causes the cheese to seperate (& the milk too!) which in turn leaves a grainy texture. Next time reduce the heat considerably and bring it to a simmer, but don't Boil it.
