Expert Tips

  • Mmm, Alfredo! But without all the fat? Sure! Just substitute evaporated fat-free milk for the whipping cream and use a reduced-fat Parmesan cheese blend to slash the fat in half.
  • Make it even heartier. This rich pasta dish becomes the base for other flavorful dishes when you add cut-up cooked poultry, meat and veggies. Garnish with fresh herb sprigs.
  • Grilled chicken breast, cut into strips, makes a great addition to this dish.
  • Sauté uncooked deveined peeled shrimp with garlic and a little seafood seasoning, then toss with the sauce and fettuccine.
