One of my most favorite pasta dishes! Be sure to serve with crusty bread smothered with unsalted butter and a vinaigrette dressed salad!

Here's a tip that can help you reduce your sugar and fat intake and save you a little money. If you buy a jar of Alfredo sauce, try cutting it with an equal amount of chicken broth.

This is my "poor man's" version of Alfredo sauce when I don't have heavy cream.



Saute minced garlic in the butter till fragrant but not browned. Stir in milk and water and bring to low simmer.

Undercook the pasta in salted water. Drain without rinsing, add it to the white sauce and simmer until the pasta is al dente. The starch from the pasta will help thicken the sauce.

Finally, remove from heat, stir in Parmesan cheese. The cheese will do the final thickening.

Add sauteed chicken, blanched broccoli, or asparagus, or even peas and chopped ham, or even bacon for a fake "carbonara."

A tasty garlicky "Alfredo" sauce without heavy cream.
