Low-Fat Alfredo Sauce

If you like Alfredo sauce but not all the calories that come with it, try this low-fat version. It is very tasty and makes for a quick weeknight meal. This recipe serves 2, but is easily doubled or tripled for a family meal. Pair it with a nice tossed salad and you have a healthy meal that took very little time to prepare.

Low Fat Alfredo Sauce
1 ½ ounce Butter Buds or Molly McButter
½ cup evaporated skim milk
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp. White pepper
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Mix ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat through, stirring constantly.
Add cooked pasta to pan and toss to coat.
