Fettucine Alfredo is ‘one of those dishes’ that most people think is ‘off limits’ when it comes to eating healthy. However, through experimenting with different ingredients, I have found that even the most heavy dishes can be lightened up, without loosing their ‘traditional’ taste! The star of this dish is the Laughing Cow Cheese, which packs a powerful cheesy punch, for only 30 calories a wedge!
Traditional Alfredo recipes generally call for heavy cream, butter, cheese, and white pasta noodles, which is why many alfredo recipes can come out to around 1,000 calories a plate! The substitutions in this recipe allow for the sauce to remain rich, cheesy, and creamy, without all of the fat and calories. Also, there are many wonderful whole grain pastas that taste wonderful, and have the added bonus of having fiber and protein to keep you satisfied! You could also add chicken and/or veggies to make it a well-rounded meal!
