    PrincessCalynn's Note:

    This sauce is lower in fat than traditional Alfredo Sauce but full of flavour. Great as a side with grilled chicken or double it for a meal with meat filled pasta.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      The key here is patience, add all ingredients gradually!
    2. 2
      Melt butter in sauce pan on stove top with medium heat.
    3. 3
      Gradually whisk in flour.
    4. 4
      This will create a yellow paste.
    5. 5
      Gradually add milk, whisking until incorporated and no lumps are present.
    6. 6
      Continue to whisk until hot.
    7. 7
      Usually 3-5 minutes.
    8. 8
      The longer you cook the base (without the cheese) the thicker the sauce will be.
    9. 9
      Add parmesan slowly, again whisking until incorporated.
    10. 10
      Add crushed garlic and pepper.
    11. 11
      Cook for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
    12. 12
      Remove from heat.

      Absolutely marvellous! Like Dorothy, I've stayed away from Alfredo sauces because they're usually so heavy. I used this recipe as a side with a German Pasta dish, and it was great! The only problem I had was: Since I'd scaled it down to 1 serving (there's always a limit to how much you can scale a recipe!) and was probably too "patient" while cooking, the sauce turned out a bit too thick and I had to "loosen" it up a bit with some extra milk. But I'm definitely going to try this one again... it's a sure winner!

      This is good !! Love Alfredo but it is usually so heavy in calories. I put it over linguine and added some chopped black olives on top, also sprinkled some more parmesan on top. Used 2% milk, didn't have 1%. A very good supper, thank-you Jellybean, it will be a repeat!! Dorothy

      I lost my low fat Alfredo recipe and was glad to have seen this one! Sooo much better than mine! This recipe doubled very easily. You can't tell at all that it's low fat! Unbelievable! The only thing it needed was salt. I served this over chicken and Penne with spinach.
