No-Guilt Alfredo Sauce

This is the recipe served at our Relief Society "Everyday Angels" birthday celebration. The women were surprised when I told them that this is so much better for you than traditional Alfredo sauce because it tastes very creamy.
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 c. milk
  • 4 oz. nonfat or low-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Gather all ingredients and have them measured out. Set in sequence of list so you're ready because it goes quickly.
  2. In non-stick saucepan, add butter and garlic. Saute for 30 seconds. Whisk in flour, then slowly whisk in the milk. Cook, stirring continually, until slightly thick, about 2 minutes. Whisk in cream cheese and parmesan over low heat until smooth, about 1-2 mins. Remove from heat and cover until ready to serve.
  3. Serve over a bed of your favorite pasta!


Use this recipe as a base and add anything that sounds good: spinach, broccoli, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, chicken, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, etc.
