Recipe

Alfredo is one of those things that seems like it would be impossible to make lower calorie but there are ways to create a delicious cheesy sauce without so much fat and calories. To lower the calories, this recipe uses low fat milk and Parmesan cheese. Then to amp things up even more, asparagus, cauliflower, sundried tomatoes, and mushrooms are added.
