Almost Alfredo Sauce

|
Categories: Low-fat, Make ahead, Vegetarian
Type: Sauces

This sauce is healthier than the traditional Alfredo Sauce, and every bit as good.

Serves: 6 1/2 cup servings

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup grated nonfat Parmesan cheese, or 1/2 cup regular Parmesan cheese mixed with 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 cups skim or low-fat milk

Directions:

  1. Place the Parmesan cheese, evaporated milk, pepper, and nutmeg in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  2. Place the milk in a 1 1/2-quart pot, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the evaporated milk mixture to the pot, and cook, still stirring, for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add a little more milk if the sauce seems too thick. Serve hot over pasta or vegetables, or use in casseroles as you would condensed cream soups.
