Alfredo sauce is mostly cream and butter with a touch of garlic and maybe some white wine. This recipe is a lot lighter than that, but still gives the creamy texture and mouthful of flavor that you’re hoping for. The original mix I created has pasta already in it for a fast skillet in 1 dish, but you can leave it out to just make the sauce for pizza or something like that. If you want it to be REALLY rich and creamy, when preparing the final dish replace a cup of milk with a can of evaporated milk.
8 oz Fettucini, broken into pieces (whole grain pasta works fine)
2 T flour (or 1 Tbs Cornstarch for gluten free)
2 T powdered instant skim milk
1/2 t basil
1 t lemon pepper
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t salt
1/2 C parmesean cheese
Mix all in a quart bag. To prepare. Pour mix into a skillet with 2 cups of water and 2 cups of milk. Stir well until all the powders are blended and noodles are well moistened. Bring just to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until noodles are tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes. Sauce will thicken as it cools. If you like, stir in sauteed vegtables, cooked chicken cubes, turkey sausage, or shrimp.
You can also make the mix without the pasta and just make sauce. To prepare stir the mix with 1 cup of milk and cook and stir until thickened. It makes a nice sauce for Alfredo pizza :).
