Reduced Fat Shrimp Alfredo

Recipe by carole in orlando

We love Alfredo Sauce and also have to watch the fat content. Smart Balance Margarine makes a spread with 67% vegetable oil that you can use in cooking and that's what I used.

What a special treat this was.We love Alfredo anything. Great to find this low fat recipe to enjoy. I bought frozen cooked shrimps from Costo and with this recipe they tasted fresh. I will make this one again and again; thank you for sharing. It goes in my Best Zarr Our Favourites. Rita

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a Bechamel Sauce by melting the margarine in a pan, adding the flour and making a smooth mixture.
  2. Slowly add the milk and stir constantly with a whisk until well blended and of the thickness you desire.
  3. Add as much Parmesan cheese as you like, we thought 3/4 Cup was enough and let it melt and blend with the Bechamel Sauce.
  4. Defrost the shrimp in cold water, remove the tail if necessary, and add to the Alfredo Sauce until heated.
  5. Do not over cook as the shrimp with toughen.
  6. Cook the pasta as directed on the package, mix the pasta and Alfredo Sauce and serve with garlic bread and a tossed salad.
