Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

I found this online and made it Monday night and it was delicious. Great to know that I don't have to die every time I crave alfredo sauce.


what you need




  • 1/2 lb. Fettuccine, uncooked 

  • 1-1/4 cups Fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth 

  • 4 tsp. Flour 

  • 1/3 cup PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese 

  • 3 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided 

  • 1/4 tsp. Ground nutmeg 

  • 1/8 tsp. Pepper 

  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley 



COOK pasta as directed on package.


MEANWHILE, beat broth and flour in medium saucepan with whisk until well blended. Add reduced-fat cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. Parmesan, nutmeg and pepper; cook 2 min. or until mixture comes to boil and thickens, stirring constantly.


DRAIN pasta; place in large bowl. Add sauce; toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and parsley.


It didn't taste like diet alfredo. I added garlic and grilled chicken to really round out the meal.
