healthy creamy pasta

This is the perfect recipe for meatless Friday.

This rich creamy pasta is my ultimate comfort food.

The fettuccine Alfredo has been my favorite Italian dish since forever but I made the mistake of checking out the nutrition facts for the famous fettuccine Alfredo.

And after seeing how much extra butter and heavy cream this dish contain, I felt like it was probably time to swear it off for good. But let’s be real, a girl needs her favorite pasta dish every now and then.

So I set up my mind to find ways to lighten up this classic delicious dish.

So I experiment with few ingredients that can keep the creamy texture of this dish but stay delicious and I was trying to find an easy way with easy ingredients.

And it worked! Turn out you can have a rich and creamy pasta made at home in just 20 minutes maximum!

This lightened-up recipe is my new obsession. I did this recipe few months ago and I have been cooking it since then but hadn’t time to share it yet.

Today I was preparing it for tomorrow and I went ahead and share it with you.

So put on some water to boil, and let’s make some pasta!
