Put steamed cauliflower, milk, cream cheese, flour, & salt in a food processor or blender. Blend until fairly smooth. I did half at a time. Set aside.

Melt butter in a pan & saute garlic over medium high heat making sure not to burn it. After a few minutes pour your cauliflower mixture into pan & stir constantly over medium high heat.

Bring to simmer & cook until thickened stirring constantly. At this point add salt & pepper to taste.

Once thickened remove from heat. Stir in cheese, cover, & let sit for 10 minutes. It will thicken even more as it sits.

After 10 minutes pour into a large bowl & serve with noodles or zucchini noodles.
