Buttery Alfredo Sauce

Now that we have an actual real life house (that isn’t the size of a postage stamp), I’m excited to cook. E is a Meat-And-Potatoes Man but he will branch out and eat what I make. Since he’s been back to the gym and I’ve been still trying to lose this baby weight, I try to make things that are healthier/lower carb/higher protein. I love alfredo sauce but the nearest Olive.Garden is 90 mins away. (Everything is 90 freakin mins away…) so I found a recipe via allrecipes.com and decided to give it a whirl

I cut the recipe in half to accommodate E and I. I’m a huge fan of cheese. The stinkier the better, in my opinion. Fontina has the feet smell but tastes fantastic. And garlic. Garlic makes the world better. E laughs at me and jokes that I’m worried I’ll get attacked by vampires so I eat so much garlic. I totally don’t believe in that crap but hey, at least I’m covered 😉

So after throwing everything in the pot, I ended up with sauce.

The only issue I had was it didn’t thicken the way I would have liked it to. I’m wondering if I didn’t add enough flour but either way, it was delicious. I poached from chicken (two chicken breasts, some low sodium chicken broth, 15 mins on each side starting with top breast up), and then served with spaghetti noodles. I attempted cups in the oven with the noodles, chicken, and sauce but sadly it didn’t happen. I’ll have to try again.

Either way — 2 thumbs up from E and I. At only 297 cals for 1/2 of one serving (I made it to serve 4), I’ll take it!
