The taste of this sauce is miles beyond the best jarred stuff I've ever come across with the added bonus of having half of the fat and calories. WIN-WIN! From Betty Crocker's Simple Healthy Meals. The original calls for shallot, which I never have, but onion seems to work just fine.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe! My husband and I were craving Alfredo but not the heavy fattening kind and this hit the spot. I tossed Ronzoni's Garden Delight fettuccine with this sauce, a can of petite diced tomatoes, and steamed and chopped asparagus. Quick, HEALTHY, and yummy! However, the fat-free half-and-half was too sweet. The side of the carton listed corn syrup as an ingredient. Next time I will try low fat half-and-half. Perhaps it will not be as sweet.
- 2 cups fat-free half-and-half
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 2 tablespoons onions, FINELY minced
- 2 -3 garlic cloves, pressed
- 1⁄2 cup light sour cream (I love Daisy)
- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon white pepper
