You know when a recipe is good? When it's delicious, fast, and endlessly adaptable, like this Skinny Alfredo Sauce. Adaptable may not have been on your list of recipe virtues, but here are a couple of important reasons why it should be. First, learning how to make one easily adapted dinner recipe actually means learning how to make several of them. Following a fast recipe is a time-saver, but knowing it like the back of your hand and being able to bang it out without thought or much effort takes things to another level. And relieves stress. We like things that relieve stress. Another reason that I love adaptable recipes is because you can keep the ingredients for it on hand with a higher likelihood that you'll actually use them. So lets say that you buy the broth, milk, cheese and pasta to make Skinny Fettucini Alfredo, but end up deciding that you don't feel like eating that. No problem! Add a bunch of frozen veggies for creamy pasta primavera or steam some chicken, red pepper and onion with cajun spices and make this Skinny Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta. Dinner—and your ingredients—saved without waste or take out. It's a beautiful thing. (more after the jump)
I don't know if you've noticed that I haven't been posting many pasta recipes lately. See, I have this problem. It's a pasta problem: Once I start eating it, I cannot stop—especially if it's tossed in a rich tomato sauce or creamy sauce with cheese. So, even though my family loves pasta—like loves it—they have been suffering from not-enough-pasta syndrome. I got complaints. Saw signs of withdrawal. And have even watched them wolf down an excess of pasta while at restaurants where, finally, it was available to them. I was depriving them and, honestly, myself, and have decided that it's time to deal with my pasta problem. You probably thinks that means I'm ready to work on some willpower. Well, you're wrong. At least that's not my immediate plan. Right now, I've decided to think of ways to lighten up my favorite classic pastas like this "skinny" Fettucini Alfredo. Someone on my One Hungry Mama YouTube channel asked me to share more pasta recipes (doh!) and it was the perfect time to come clean about my problem and share this recipe. Because if I can help just one other person who has a pasta problem too, it's all worth it. (more after the jump)
