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
