Skinny Alfredo

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

Usually, Alfredo Sauce is a surefire way to bust your calorie budget. My version is MUCH lighter, with just under 90 calories per serving! So have that fettucine alfredo, sans guilt!

Ingredients

    1 cup 1% milk
    1 tbsp. unsalted butter
    1 tsp. olive oil
    1/2 oz parmesan cheese
    2 tsp. minced garlic
    Dried oregano and parsley
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

1.) Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. When it starts to foam a little, add in the garlic and olive oil.

2.) Slowly whisk in the flour. Let the flour and fat come together into a paste (called a roux), then add in the dried herbs.

3.) Slowly whisk in the milk until the roux is fully integrated. Bring this to a boil over medium heat, which should take about 7 minutes or so.

4.) Drop the heat to low the minute the sauce begins to bubble -- it should be nice and thick now. Add the cheese, salt and pepper, and serve over your favorite pasta dishes!

    I noticed this recipe didn't state how much flour. To help out any who may be wanting to try this out, a general rule when making rue is equal parts fat and flour. For this recipe, that means that you would use one tablespoon of flour. Overall a great recipe. I added a sprinkle of onion powder, too. - 12/3/11
