Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole

Ever since you lovely readers told me how much you loved my Paleo Chicken and Rice Casserole, I’ve been trying to create more casserole recipes on my blog which I’ve been lacking in. So when the folks at Path of Life reached out to me about using one of their yummy frozen products to create a dish, I thought this was a great opportunity to do just that!

Path of Life is a family owned, natural and organic food company that creates clean and healthy frozen side dishes and produce that are high in quality and delicious in flavor. I was especially interested in their frozen vegetable side dishes because I’m always looking for ways to whip up a meal that’s quick and easy, and these side dishes looked like such a convenient and healthy way to do that.

I decided to try out their All Natural Roasted Garlic Cauliflower because I love how simple and clean the ingredients are: cauliflower, extra virgin olive oil, roasted garlic, parsley, sea salt. Yes, pleaaase. All the frozen side dishes can be prepared in just 4 minutes in the microwave, but I decided to go a slightly different route to make this Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole.

For this paleo-fied version, I used sweet potatoes for the noodles and Path of Life All Natural Roasted Garlic Cauliflower to make the dairy-free alfredo sauce, which turned out so creamy and decadent without even a hint of dairy. I’m always giddy about the power of cauliflower to make sauces and soups so thick and smooth, and I loved that I didn’t need to add much spices to the sauce because the seasoning on the cauliflower was already really great for this recipe.

This Paleo Bacon Alfredo Casserole was so warm and comforting, and my husband and I really enjoyed the combination of the garlicky cauliflower alfredo sauce with the salty bacon. It is hearty enough to be a meal on its own, but it’s also very veggie-heavy so you can eat it as a side dish if you are looking for a bit more protein!
