Chef John said that this was a bridge recipe for those who want to eat healthier, and that I agree with. I believe it's the cauliflower taste, which persists in the sauce no matter how you try to modify it.
I made mine according to instructions. I will try John's favorite ww pasta recommendation to see if this improves on the taste next time. Also, I should've cooked my pasta under al dente. I didn't time the cooking of my pasta and completion of my sauce well, and so I had to reheat the pasta in the saucepan in order for it to absorb the lemon and meld with the flavors of the sauce and cheese...by the time I was done, my pasta was a bit overdone. I added some roasted veggies and sauteed sausage to fill out the dish more.
I honestly would rather have the full fat version and portion control, seeing how this recipe does not quite hit the spot for me. I still really enjoy watching Chef John's videos.
