Fettuccini Alfredo VI

Recipe by  

"Just as good as the cholesterol-laden original. Created for diabetics, but great for anyone trying to reduce their fat intake. For added flavor try using a garlic and herb Parmesan cheese blend and to increase fiber content use whole wheat pasta. Easily doubled for when you need more than 2 servings. Enjoy!"

I think this had a bit too much garlic. It was a little overpowering. I really like fettuccini, but this is a recipe that I would probably not make again.

Very good. I actually forgot the parsley, but I would recommend adding about 1/4 tsp of salt to the sauce (unless you add a lot to your pasta water). The texture was perfect, but the salt really helped add some flavor. Great if you add some leftover chicken breast.

This is pretty good for a lighter sauce; however, I wouldn't call it "Alfredo" because it didn't really taste like alfredo at all. Just a thick white sauce with a pleasant flavor. (A lot better than another light alredo sauce recipe I've tried from here). It was a good way to use up some Neufchatel that needed using though. I used fresh basil instead of parsley and I enjoyed that. Served with whole wheat fettuccini and spinach salad.

Very tasty, could not tell it was low fat. Easy way to make homemade alfredo sauce. My recommendation is to double the recipe, because you'll want leftovers!

this is pretty good. I added a lot to it. I added broccoli, mushrooms, green bell peppers and onions.

I added mushrooms, broccoli and green onions and used whole weat penne pasta and this was absolutely wonderful, especially for a lower fat / cholesterol recipe. I will be making this more often. thanks for sharing.

Whipped this up, quadrupling (Except amount of milk...Add SLOWLY UNTIL IT MEETS YOUR AESTHETIC / TEXTURAL NEEDS) - adding in shredded up chicken breast, and broccoli florets and a touch of nutmeg. Used "NO YOKE" noodles, as it's all I had on hand. Perfectly creamy, great flavor. Will make again.
