Recipe Ingredients for Low-fat Alfredo Sauce

2 cups 1% low-fat milk
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
6 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 dashes pepper
1 tsp. salt

Recipe Directions for Low-fat Alfredo Sauce

  1. The key here is patience, add all ingredients gradually!

  2. Melt butter in sauce pan on stove top with medium heat.

  3. Gradually whisk in flour. This will create a yellow paste.

  4. Gradually add milk, whisking until incorporated and no lumps are present.

  5. Continue to whisk until hot. Usually 3-5 minutes.

  6. The longer you cook the base (without the cheese) the thicker the sauce will be.

  7. Add parmesan slowly, again whisking until incorporated.

  8. Add crushed garlic and pepper.

  9. Cook for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  10. Remove from heat.
