Fettuccine Alfredo is a creamy, cheesy, delicious meal. But it is packed with calories, and loads of fat, and it usually leaves you with a heavy fullness in your stomach. This recipe is a much lighter and healthier version, that doesn’t sacrifice flavor.
This recipe was adapted from Daphne Oz’s “Alfredo” as seen on abc’s The Chew.
Most Fettuccine Alfredo recipes you order when dining out have well over 1,000 calories!!
Olive Garden (dinner serving): 1220 calories and 75 grams of fat
Macaroni Grill Fettuccine Alfredo (1 serving): 1,130 calories and 81 grams of fat (More than is recommended for your total daily fat intake)
Bertolli Fettucini Alfredo Sauce (1 cup): 440 calories and 40 grams of fat
Even those made at home can have over a cup of butter added, the first recipe I found on allrecipes.com has 964 calories, and 61.2 grams of fat, that is 94% of your suggested daily limit of fat!! Oh dear.
This recipe clocks in at…wait for it…
334 calories and 7 grams of fat! And that is if it split into three generous servings!
(You could split it into four smaller size portions)
I hope you enjoy this rich, flavorful, recipe! Happy Weekend!
