Back on theMenu: Healthy Alfredo Sauce

This Healthy Alfredo Sauce is lightened up with skim milk and your choice of broth (chicken or veggie for flava), but is kept creamy with the help of non fat plain greek yogurt, and just a teeny tiny touch of parmesan cheese. This is NOT as thick and creamy as your typical alfredo sauce, but that’s to be expected! We’re not using butter, heavy cream, or cream cheese. But I promise you, you’ll love it just as much. Although it’s not as thick and creamy, this Healthy Alfredo Sauce is still plenty thick and creamy, packed with flavor, and is amazing over whole wheat fettuccine.
