So let me start by saying that I wanted to call this “Buff Fettuccine Alfredo”, but lets face it… that just sounds weird. And nobody (well most people) would have no idea what the hell I was talking about. So “skinny” it was. It all makes sense now, huh? 😉
For years I never ventured too close to Fettuccine Alfredo. There are definitely pastas that I treat myself to occasionally, but this particular variety happens to be the King of clog-your-arteries-with-butter and set you back over a thousand calories. No bueno.
Lucky for you (and my preparing-for-a-photoshoot waistline), I started some experimenting and came up with this lighter, healthier Fettuccine Alfredo. It’s got all the taste of the original but is WAYYY healthier. And, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Life is too short for nasty tasting “diet” food! 😉
Disclaimer: You may have noticed I didn’t actually use fettuccine noodles in the picture…. lol. The store was out and I really was over grocery shopping at that point (you can only hunt through noodle varieties for so long). So kill me. It all tastes the same anyways 😉
Oh and don’t forget to take a look at the nutritional fact before and after at the bottom. It’s pretty shocking!
So now the crazy party, lets compare the nutritional information for my recipe above, to Olive Garden’s Fettuccine Alfredo.
My recipe is 364 calories versus 1090 (that’s a savings of 726 calories for just one serving)! Have I convinced you yet? =)
