Most people will tell you when eating healthy, you should avoid anything that is made with a cream sauce, like Alfredo Sauce. However, I say, why avoid it when you can make a healthy Low Fat Alfredo sauce that tastes just as good, if not better than the real deal. I know there are several different variations using Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges to make a Mock Alfredo, however, this is the version that I find works the best.
I used 1/2 Garlic & Herb and 1/2 Original Swiss Laughing Cow Cheeses when I created the sauce for my Sweet Potato Gnocchi with a Creamy Mushroom & Spinach Sauce. Although my Gnocchi wasn’t perfect, this sauce was absolutely AMAZING!
I think this thick & creamy Alfredo sauce would be awesome served up over some whole wheat fettuccine with steamed broccoli, sautéed mushrooms and grilled chicken.
8 Laughing Cow Lite Original Swiss Wedges, garlic & herb or French onion (any combination works)
2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 c fat free milk
1/2 tbsp butter
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste, about 1/2 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper
If you’d like more of a fresh garlic taste, add 1 clove of minced garlic when you first start to cook the sauce.
1. Combine all the above ingredients in a small sauce place. Place on heat over medium low, stirring often using a wire whisk until melted and creamy. The sauce will thicken as the cheese melts.
2. Serve at once over your favorite pasta, veggies, gnocchi or as The Husband says, dip for your bread.
Yields about 1 cup of sauce, 16 Tablespoons
