*LOW CAL* Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo!!
« on: May 14, 2011 @ 10:41 PM »
Not only is this recipe lower in calories than most Alfredo's, it's totally KID APPROVED! Oh and husband approved, too. :D

Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo

454g fettuccine
1 1/2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup chopped bottled roasted red peppers (which I found at WalMart)
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/2 cup Parmesan (gotta use real Parm, not the Kraft powdery stuff)
salt and pepper, to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute. Slowly add the milk. Add red pepper and garlic. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour the mixture into a processor and puree until smooth and uniform in colour. Return to the pan and stir in Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until pasta is ready. Drain the pasta and add directly to the saucepan. Toss to evenly coat. Serves 4 @ 540 calories per serving.

On my blog, I love to share low calorie recipes that are yummy and approved by my 4 and 2 year olds. Stop by to check them out, and if you have any you want to share, I'd TOTALLY love it! If they're low cal, I'll try them and then post them on my blog if they get an approval from my littlies!!

Just made this! It's yummy. I make my own alfredo and it's like a stick a butter... cup of cream and so on so the TBSP or so of butter and using milk really lightens it up. Thanks for sharing!
