Fettuccine Alfredo

EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4 (160 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. But it was sooo good! Oh my gosh. I love it so much!

I couldn't believe how good this was! And Easy. I added some shrimp so that bumped up the calories a little and used Greek yogurt in place of the FF sour cream. My BF couldn't believe that it was a healthy recipe. And neither could I!. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

This was really yummy! I didn't have sour cream, so I substituted by using fat free plain yogurt, and it worked well! Made twice the amount since I have a family of 4. Being the only vegetarian in the home, my entire family LOVED it! Will make this again for sure!

My family of 5, which includes 3 hungry boys (2 teens & a preteen) enjoyed this recipe- which means a lot since they all LOVE the real thing. I didn't have zucchini on hand but I added some chicken and salt. They also voted for rigatoni, so I used that.

Half and half works better

Half and half works better than lowfat sour cream. The taste is more authentic and both are about the same calorie-wise.

Really delicious...a great way to get the kids to get some more veggies in without them knowing. I added some chicken to make it more of a meal and it was great!
