“Zucchini provides a healthy touch to this delightfully rich and creamy sauce! Reduced amounts of cream and cheese also make this great recipe healthier.”

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Lightly cook zucchini by tossing into pasta water just before draining.
  2. Heat butter and garlic in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in cream and simmer for 5 minutes, then add cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in parsley.
  3. Toss sauce with cooked whole wheat fettuccine and zucchini strips.

This did not make much sauce at all. I was trying to make an Alfredo sauce with pasta and I ended up more than doubling the heavy cream to cover my noodles. Also, if you follow the recipe exactly the consistency is that of queso, not a sauce. It seems like it would be well suited for serving with plain vegetables though.

I made the sauce exactly but doubled it. .. with the only change being that I added 1 teaspoon onion powder and I used minced garlic. I used the sauce with chicken & broccoli calzones. Turned out delish. Thank you for sharing.
