Greek Yogurt Fettuccine Alfredo

Greek

Oh how I love my pasta, and my all-time favourite just HAD to be Fettuccine Alfredo. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat pretty much any pasta dish, but this white sauce has a special place in my heart. However, as we all know, it is one of the more indulgent sauces you can eat, so it is definitely eaten in moderation.

I have tried numerous amounts of recipes for a healthier version of this beloved dish, but all were just plain gross or tasted nothing like the real deal…until now. I’m not claiming that this is an exact replica of the heavy, fat-laden sauce, but when your main ingredient is heavy cream, it’s a little challenging to find a combination of ingredients that mimic it exactly. But this comes pretty darn close!

This version cuts the fat of this dish from approximately 25g to 9g and contains 18g of protein! So for all of my Alfredo lovers out there, you can now “indulge” a little more often on this dish and of course have the real deal once in a while.

Have a great day!

    White sauce is the love of my life. Actually, it’s pretty much the only pasta sauce I’ll eat… I don’t -mind- marinara, but I’d honestly prefer to just have plain buttered noodles buried in parmesan. Yes — I am all of 10 years old :mrgreen:

    This sounds simply delicious! I can only imagine what flavours the cheese adds to it, mmmm!
    Might be an idea to make in the near future :D I love my pasta too, but hardly make it, noodles are just too darn easy to use instead… Need to change that! :D Thanks for a great recipe! x

    This is an awesome healthfied version of fettuccine Alfredo (which, to be honest, is one of my favorite pasta dishes ;) ). This looks amazing! I mean, look at those nutrition stats!

    Also, I love your plate! That picture is gorgeous :)
