Foodie Fridays: Tuna Cassarole- Low Carb Style

I was craving something to soothe the soul, since the weather has been pretty down, but since New Year's resolution started it had to be healthy-- Enter Low Carb.  This was seriously good ya'll (unless you don't like tuna of course.)  It will definitely be in my rotation.

2 heads cauliflower
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup diced onion
1 jar prepared Light Alfredo sauce
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese, divided
2 cans water packed tuna
salt & pepper, to taste
1 cup frozen peas --I used more! :)


Bring large pot of water to boil. Cut cauliflower into small bite sized florets. Once water comes to rolling boil, salt water and stir in cauliflower pieces. Cook until cauliflower is soft. Drain and set aside. In same pot over medium heat, saute onion in olive oil until soft, 5 minutes. Sprinkle in salt and pepper. Pour in Alfredo sauce. Pour milk into jar of Alfredo sauce, replace lid and shake to remove any excess. Uncap and pour into pot. Sprinkle 2 cups of cheese into sauce and stir until cheese has melted and sauce is smooth. Pour in cauliflower, tuna, and frozen peas. Stir until everything is well mixed and coated in sauce. Splash in a little milk if sauce seems to thick. Transfer to oven safe dish or small dishes and smooth the top and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.  Then place dish under hot broiler for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly. Serve hot.
