Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Guilt-Free Comfort: Low-Cal Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine alfredo is notorious for being one of the heaviest Italian pastas. This healthier recipe dramatically lightens the load by making wise (low-fat) dairy choices that don't affect the flavor or texture and skipping the butter altogether. At less than 350 calories per serving, this creamy and comforting dish is a perfect dinner for a special Winter night at home.

Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups low-fat milk
  2. 8 large cloves garlic, peeled
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  5. Pinch of ground nutmeg
  6. 1 pound fettuccine, whole wheat or egg
  7. 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
  8. 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided
  9. 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil.
  2. Combine milk and garlic in a heavy medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer gently until the garlic is tender and the milk has reduced to 1-1/2 cups, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  3. Puree milk and garlic in a blender until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.) Return to the pan and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Keep the sauce warm.
  4. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a warmed large bowl.
  5. Whisk cream cheese and 1/2 cup parmesan into the sauce. Add to the fettuccine, and toss well. Sprinkle with parsley.
  6. Serve immediately, passing the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan separately.

Serves 4.
