Definitely not a meal for one who watches their fat intake.
I tried making Alfredo Sauce for the first time.
It was super easy and tasted oh so good.
But it has to be eaten in a limited amount as the fat content is quite high.
Here is the recipe I used:
1/2 cup Butter
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 Cup 1/2 + 1/2
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
I Tbs Garlic
Melt the butter add the cheese and stir until it melts. Add the 1/2 + 1/2, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Stir until smooth and hot.
I can see where a few changes will bring down the fat content, but will it still taste just as good?
We will find out once I try it - just hope it gets the same thumbs-up from the family as the original recipe does.
The "original" recipe calls for just heavy cream and butter, not half and half. There's no cream cheese in real Alfredo sauce either.ReplyDelete
