Chrissy's Fettucine Alfredo

Submitted by: CATMARTENS


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    16 ounces fettucine pasta
    1/2 cup whipped butter
    5 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 1/2 cups fat free 1/2 & 1/2
    1 egg yolk
    1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese
    2 TBSP dried parsley

Tips

You can toss in cut steamed asparagus or steamed broccoli for variety and it will add minimal calories to the dish.


Directions

1.Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettucine pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2.In a large skillet melt the butter and add the chopped garlic. Cook on low for about 5 minutes, stirring often, making sure not to burn the garlic.

3.Pour about a 1/4 cup of the heavy cream into a small bowl. Add the egg yolk and beat together; put aside. Pour the remaining cream into the frying pan. Increase the heat to medium-high. As the cream starts to boil, mix rapidly using a whisk. Slowly add the cream/egg mixture. You do not want the egg to curdle. Continue whisking until well blended.

4.Add 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese and continue to mix the cream. Pour in the remaining Parmesan and the parsley, mix until smooth. Immediately remove from stove. Serve over cooked pasta.
