I am trying to find a low-fat alternative to using whipping cream in my alfredo sauce. Any ideas? This needs to be something that tastes close enough that my family will not notice the difference. Thanks
In working with a low fat Carbonara, I used low fat cottage cheese (small curd) warmed over a low heat till it came together. A couple of TBS of parmesan cheese for flavor and it turned out pretty good.
Some foods can not -- should not -- be made "low fat" and Alfredo sauce is one of them. If you want lower fat, use less sauce. If you can't do that, give up something else so that you can have the real thing in a normal portion. But don't futz around with something that works to make it nutritionally acceptable but culinarily an abomination.
And WHY on earth would you want to do such a thing, anyway???
Suzanne, I quite agree. Alfredo sauce is high fat! That is why we eat it .
There are times to splurge and Alfredo is one of them.A culinary abomination is great wording Suzanne!!! Peace , Doug..............
