Fettuccine Alfredo

EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (157 votes)

Alfredo di Lello, the Roman restaurateur who created his signature sauc.e in the 1920s, might be startled to find this streamlined version that still tastes rich enough to satisfy those deep creamy-pasta cravings. The addition of zucchini boosts the nutritional profile. And when cut into thin strands, it can be twirled gracefully on a fork.



READER'S COMMENT:
"My husband & I loved this! Unfortunately, I used my new blender for the first time and got hot liquid all over myself and the kitchen. I also did not have corn starch and used a flour and water mixture. It needed a lot of salt as well...

Yummy!

I also used a garlic press instead of the whole cloves; MUCH easier! I actually used more garlic and black pepper...we added poached boneless chicken breast and had a FABULOUS meal! OMGosh, we haven't eaten Fettuccine Alfredo in 7 years, and this was better than any we remember having!! Really a very delicious dish! Oh, and I also splurged on some really great Italian Parm/Reggiano (didn't use the pre-shredded stuff). Great flavor & mouth feel!!

Easy, delicious, low-cal

Picky toddler liked it!

Overall, delicious recipe. My picky toddler loved it and that was the whole reason I tried this recipe. Next time, I would adjust the spices to provide more flavor.

Easy, quick, kid-friendly

The Picture Is Not Whole Grain Fettuccine

If you're going to tout the healthy whole grain pasta, why show a picture of the less healthy but tastier white pasta?

Maybe it's Smart Taste Pasta

I haven't tried this recipe but I would simply zest the garlic clove into the broth before cooking and eliminate the blender step. Easier clean up and no blending hot liquids.

Very Yum!

This was nice and easy to make (directions are a little vauge though). It was creamy and filling enough to satisfy my craving for this normally unhealthy dish. Since I don't really eat chicken, I added Quorn tenders and it was perfect!

Creamy & Satisfying
