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!
