This recipe uses light Alfredo sauce made with cauliflower instead of white cream sauce, and combines it with easy homemade tomato pasta sauce. Together with whole wheat spaghetti, it makes very tasty and healthy dish. This is true comfort food, but at the same time so good for you because it is low-fat and full of fiber and nutrients.

- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 medium onion finely chopped
