The Laughing Cow Alfredo

The Laughing Cow Alfredo

Are you a cheese lover?  If so, I am sure you have at least heard of laughing cow cheese and even hopefully tried it! It is a delicious, low-fat, low-calorie cheese that is creamy, delicious and versatile for many different recipes.  I am a pasta lover and have always been partial to cream sauces.  Typical fettuccine alfredo recipes can pack on many calories... a dinner portion at Olive Garden is 1200 calories, 75 grams fat and 99 grams of carbohydrates. This can be discouraging for those who LOVE alfredo pasta.  Well, you are in a treat! I have the perfect recipe for you if you love alfredo sauce.. This is a MUCH healthier version and yes, the flavor is still present!  Plus, it is super easy and your family and friends will love it. It is called the Laughing Cow Alfredo.  It is a perfect pair with cooked broccoli.

1/2 cup skim milk
1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. butter
3 wedges Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss Cheese

Combine all ingredients on low until melted.  Stir with your favorite cooked vegetable and whole-grain or high fiber pasta.

Tip:  If you want a thicker sauce,  take a few spoonfuls of the combine sauce and pour into a separate small bowl.  Add a bit of corn starch and stir until mixed.  Pour corn starch mixture back into sauce, to help thicken.
