Guiltless Alfredo Sauce
Anyone who has read my blog, probably knows that I am obsessed with fettuccine alfredo. However, it's not the healthiest of meals......BUT, I found this guiltless alfredo recipe and was SO happy with how good it was, with much fewer calories!!! In fact, there was only 227 calories for a full bowl of the sauce we used on our fettuccine! Yeah, I'm pretty much stoked about this. Now I can make alfredo whenever I want and not feel guilty about it. Not only that, but it is delicious. Enjoy!
2 cups low-fat milk (I used skim)
3 ounces low-fat cream cheese (fat-free not recommended)
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon butter
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1. Put milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt into a blender. Process until smooth and set aside.
2. In a non-stick sauce pan, melt butter on med-high heat. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
3. Add milk mixture and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until it thickens. Remove from heat.
4. Add cheese, stir, and cover quickly. Let sauce stand for at least 10 minutes.
