Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo | #recipe #pasta #skinny #Alfredo Fettuccine Alfredo is one of my favorite comfort foods. How can you not love a thick creamy cheese sauce tossed with tender thick fettuccine noodles? I came up with a way to eat my favorite comfort food and not feel guilty about it. This Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo tastes just as good as the original and is so much healthier.

This pasta comes together in under 20 minutes making it a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo | #recipe #pasta #skinny #Alfredo This Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo comes in just under 500 calories a serving. This pasta can easily serve 4 alongside a side salad. For hungry pasta lovers like myself and my boyfriend it serves 2 just fine.


I swapped out tons of calories using 1% milk instead of heavy cream and low sodium chicken broth for flavor. Olive oil was used in place of butter and tons of garlic is added. For extra flavor and a hint of color garnish with fresh parley and an extra squeeze of lemon juice.

You would never know this Fettuccine Alfredo is low-calorie. It is bursting with flavor and is rich and creamy just like the original.

The Alfredo sauce starts with a simple roux of olive oil and flour which helps thicken our sauce. I like to make the Alfredo sauce while the pasta is cooking and toss everything together at the end.

Skip the restaurant style Fettuccine Alfredo and give this Skinny version a try!

    made this tonight with my boyfriend and threw it away afterwards. in the future, it DEFINITELY needs more seasoning. very bland. if you make this, add more garlic and other seasonings to spice it up a bit.

    • Hi,

      I am so sorry to hear this! You can always season to taste with salt and pepper and add extra parmesan cheese to add flavor.

      Thanks for the feedback!
