Skinny Alfredo

Last weekend I went on a 10k run and came back home in time to whip up dinner! This meal didn't take very long at all and was super easy to make. The sauce has a skim-milk base, as opposed to heavy whipping cream, making it a healthy dinner option! The garlic-y taste of the sauce is so good and pairs well with a nice white wine and some grilled chicken. Although, I didn't enjoy a glass of wine until later since I had to drink a lot of water and my protein shake! My husband, however, felt like he had been wined and dined with this meal!

Skinny Alfredo

- 1 pkg. fettuccine noodles, cooked as directed
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 1 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
- 1 cup low-fat milk, I used skim
- 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper

1. In a large sauce pan heat your olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
2. Sprinkle your flour on top of the garlic stir to combine.
3. Slowly whisk in your chicken broth, and then your milk. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for a few minutes to thicken.
4. Stir in your parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until cheese has melted.
5. Add your pasta to the sauce and enjoy!
