Alfredo Sauce (1/4 cup serving) kec

Submitted by: KECDMC

Introduction

Instead of the traditional heavy cream which Alfredo sauce recipes traditionally use, I've substituted whole milk with teriffic results. In my opinion it's the perfect substitutuion because the fat is reduced significantly, and yet the taste is still awesome. In fact, I don't taste any difference. It still tastes just as rich and creamy over fettucini, but with less fat, a definite win- win situation.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups whole milk
    4 tablespoons salted butter
    1 cup grated parmesan cheese
    pepper to taste

Directions

This recipe yields 7 (1/4cup) servings, enough for one pound of cooked fettucini pasta. (Pasta is not figured in to the recipe nutritional information.)

While pasta cooks, start to make this sauce.
In a large saute pan over medium heat, combine the whole milk and butter. Bring it to a simmer and continue simmering for a few second, stirring until the milk and butter are blended.

Taste and add ground black pepper if desired.

Remove from the heat and set aside. Cover and keep warm until the pasta is ready.

Add the parmesan cheese to the sauce just before serving it over the cooked pasta.

  • Of course it is not going to have the taste of sauce made with cream, but it is a great alternative to lower calories. I used 1% milk. - 3/28/10
