Fettuccine Alfredo is a creamy, cheesy, delicious meal. But it is packed with calories, and loads of fat. It usually leaves you with a heavy fullness in your stomach. This recipe is a much lighter and healthier version, that doesn’t sacrifice flavor!
Most Fettuccine Alfredo recipes you order when dining out have well over 1,000 calories.
Olive Garden (dinner serving): 1220 calories and 75 grams of fat
Macaroni Grill (1 serving): 1,130 calories and 81 grams of fat (More than is recommended for your total daily fat intake.)
Bertolli Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce (1 cup): 440 calories and 40 grams of fat
Even those made at home can have over a cup of butter added. The first recipe I found on All Recipes has 964 calories and 61.2 grams of fat. That is 94% of your suggested daily limit of fat! This recipe clocks in at… wait for it…
334 calories and 7 grams of fat! And that is if it’s split into three generous servings!
I hope you enjoy this rich, flavorful, recipe!
