Recipe Ingredients for Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce

1 tbsp. margarine
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 pinch nutmeg
3 cups skim milk
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tsp. minced garlic

Recipe Directions for Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce

  1. Heat margarine over medium heat in a medium-sized saucepan until melted.

  2. Add flour; Cook, stirring for 1 minute.

  3. Whisk in milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

  4. Bring to a boil, whisking.

  5. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

  6. Toss with parmesan cheese (3/4 c) and pasta.

  7. Note: I forgot to add the parmesan cheese when I tried this recipe. It is really good without it, so I did not include it in the actual recipe (fewer cals...yaaay!). We ended up just sprinkling some on top, and it was great.

  8. Note: we also added ground beed (also not included in the recipe), and chicken breast would be good too
