Pasta with Cauliflower

I am on this site for my husband. I will be the one preparing the meals and this sounds easy and I have most of the ingredients anyhow. Also he can have more than 1/2 cup serving. He is in the hospital for Stage 4 CKD. The food he can have will be hard to get used to but he has had some meals already that he says are tasty and this sounds just like the one meal that is his favorite. I am going to try it. This site is a little hard to navigate, but I have found alot of helpful information on it about CKD and what you can eat with each stage. I am looking for more recipes where you can have more than 1/2 cup for a serving. I will rate it after he tries it ! Right now it sounds really good and it will be easy to make

This recipe is in your Kidney friendly recipes. I would like to put it into the database for the Diet Helper but the database says: ' 313 ' is not a valid value for Calories. ' 354' is not a valid value for Potassium. The recipe is good, your website is difficult to use in many respects. Dietitian Comment: I am unable to replicate this issue but will contact you by email to discuss.
