Zoodle & Mung Bean Caulifredo

I made this dish for valentines day because I thought the colors would look really sexy and I love any excuse to eat pasta like Lady and the Tramp. This "caulifredo" sauce is a low-fat, vegan version of alfredo made with a cauliflower base. I mixed zoodles and mung bean pasta together for a dynamic base - feel free to use either whatever you have on hand. I love the mix because you're getting added protein value from the mung bean noodles mixed with the light and delicate zucchini noodles. I hope you enjoy each slurp!
