Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This recipe is brilliant. I used goat milk instead of skim milk, but otherwise followed it precisely. You would never know the difference between this and a full fat recipe. Kudos to the chef! Submitted by:

Are you kidding me! This was AMAZING! When I was looking for an alfredo sauce recipe online that was..wait for it ....990 calories per serving!!!!! Then finding this one for 80 cals just goes to show you that cooking light does not mean less flavor! Submitted by:

This sauce was sooo yummy. I LOVE alfredo sauce and found this a good substitute to the full fat version. I did add another tbsp of flour to help thicken it and still would have preferred it a little thicken. But definitely satisfied my pasta craving. Submitted by:

This is excellent! I doubled the recipe and used 2 cups of fat free evaporated milk and 2 cups of fat free milk. Instead of salt I used Mrs. Dash and reduced fat Parmesan cheese. It was wonderful over Penne, chicken and Asparagus. Submitted by:

Use veggie Parmesan instead of regular type and omit the salt add-on. This tastes just as good and will bring down your salt content and add even more of a health benefit Submitted by:

Hi! I know recipes can be adjusted, but I'm curious about the sodium content in this recipe. I'd like to try it, but I'd like that information first.

thanks!

This was great! I could do without the salt because the cheese itself was salty. At the end I added some sliced grilled chicken and fresh spinach for more umph! I served it over some WW pasta and for my husband, spaghetti squash. Yummy! Submitted by:

wow this sauce is awesome !! I love garlic so I thought the amount was great. To save some calories I substituted the olive oil for a olive oil cooking spray to saute the garlic on very low heat and constantly stirring! My calculations yielded about 60 cals per serving. Submitted by:

This was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! I cannot remember the last time I ate, let alone made, alfredo sauce because of the high fat ~ THIS recipe however, has changed my mind forever! Doubled the recipe, used 2 cups evaporated skim milk plus too plus skim milk ~ did not double garlic ~ DELISH! Submitted by:

I Thought this was delicious. I did make some changes. I used half the amount of garlic and then added just a little garlic powder when I added the salt and pepper. I also added about 1tsp of Italian seasoning! Then at the end I added fresh spinach. It's a good base recipe to build on. Submitted by:

Not as cheesy as I would have liked, but considering no butter was used and the calorie of a serving this was a very good recipe. Will def use again in the future. Submitted by:

This is a good alt to fatty Alfredo sauce, however, it calls for TOO much garlic (coming from a garlic lover.) The garlic over powered the sauce. Next time, I'll only add half the garlic. And there's not enough flavor, it needs more salt for flavor. Love how easy it is to make though. Submitted by:
