Lower-Fat Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jennigator3

This recipe has become a favorite of ours because it has a taste similar to the higher-fat restaurant Alfredo sauce. If you add a few tbsp of white wine before you add the flour, it gives it an even deeper flavor. I usually make this with fettucini noodles and grilled chicken or salmon.

I really liked this recipe and it was really easy to make. I didn't get to try adding the white wine. I'll try that next time. I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for posting it.
