Low-fat Alfredo Sauce
This low fat alfredo sauce has ½ the fat and sodium of store bought versions.
Servings: Makes 2 cups
- ¼ C butter
- ¼ C flour
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 1 C skim milk
- 1 C chicken broth, low sodium
- ½ C shredded parmesan cheese
- ½ c shredded mozzarella cheese
- Italian seasonings to taste (optional)
Melt butter in large sauce pan. Over medium heat, stir in the flour, salt and pepper, stirring continually. Cook about 1 minute. When flour and butter are adequately mixed, add the chicken broth. Maintaining a low boil, slowly add the milk, stirring continually with a whisk. When the mixture is thick and bubbly, stir in the cheeses until melted and then season to taste.
Although this recipe can be made carefully in a microwave, it generally turns out better using the stove top.
