Heart Healthy * Fettuccine Alfredo

Today I am celebrating February with a Heart Healthy version of Fettuccine Alfredo. Number #1 Valentine restaurant choice is Italian so in honor of National Fettuccine Alfredo Day here’s my recipe – No reservation needed :

  • 16 oz fettuccine (whole grain)
  • 2 T butter (grape seed oil)
  • 3 Clovers garlic/ minced
  • 1/4 C flour
  • 2 C almond milk
  • 2 C low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese

in a large pot cook pasta al dente by directions. Drain in colander after cooked. In the pot add oil and saute garlic-add in flour.Then add in milk and broth. Cook about 6-7 minutes until sauce thicken. Add salt,pepper and nutmeg . Turn off heat and Add Cheese . Stir to melt and then add Noodles.

February is heart healthy month  but you can make this healthy version or full flavor version by using whole milk,butter and noodles.
