Alfredo sauce tastes so good but is usually full of fat and calories. To cut down on the fat I make a sauce using chicken broth and cream cheese. It takes just a few minutes to make and the whole family enjoys it.
Lower Fat Alfredo Sauce
1 1/4 Cup Chicken Broth, low sodium
1 Garlic Clove, pressed
3 Tablespoons Flour
1/3 Cup Low Fat Cream Cheese, cubed
3 Tablespoons Parmesean Cheese, grated
Dash of Nutmeg
Dash of Black Pepper
Add broth, flour and garlic to a saucepan over medium heat. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients. Add cubed cream cheese and parmesean cheese. Stir while cheese melts. Add nutmeg and pepper. The sauce is done when the cheese is melted and smooth.
- Add meat to the sauce. We like to add seafood such as shrimp or crab meat. You could also add cooked diced chicken.
- It is wonderful served with broccoli! A good way to get your kids to eat their vegetables.
- If you are using a 14 oz. can of chicken broth, you will have leftovers. I place the broth in a container and freeze it.
