Fettuccine Alfredo

EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (177 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.

"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...

the first two steps were fairly confusing to follow after i re-read it 4/5 times...and in the end it was just dry...

but, it was warm so, i ate it...

it was warm and i ate it
Enjoyed very much!

I just made this for dinner and my family (including my 3 year old) loved it. I added some mushrooms and bacon that I needed to use up and I also used plain greek yogurt instead of the sour cream.


A wonderful healthy twist to the inner fat-kid favorite. My husband and I loved this and will make again frequently.

Fast and easy
EatingWell does it again!

I made the sauce but ate it with broccoli and a grilled chicken breast instead of the zucchini. It was delicious. I will definitely make again.

Very close to the "real" thing (i.e. same flavor, less fat).
Mimics alfredo sauce

This is an excellent, light sauce. I have an easier way to make it--forget the blender. Start out by pressing the garlic in a garlic press, add to the broth and cook for about five minutes. Then stir in the cornstarch mixture and thicken. Finally, take off the heat and whisk in the cheese and finally the light sour cream. If this stands too long it will "thin out." If that happens to you--as it did to me--add another 2 tablespoons of cornstarch thinned in water and GENTLY simmer until the sauce thickens. I did not make the rest of the recipe, although it sounds great. I used the sauce for spinach pasta that I bought at the store.

easy to make
