Lower-Fat Alfredo

8 Aug

I exercised tonight – sweated it out for a good half hour, drank tons of water…and then promptly ate some Oreos. So, in penance, I’m posting something low-fat. 🙂 Well, low-er fat! The funny thing is though, I really don’t like the full-fat version of this recipe. It’s too buttery for me. So, I only make the lower-fat version based on taste and not nutrition (Oreos people…after exercising…). It’s way better than the jarred version of Alfredo you can buy at the grocery store, it’s simple to make, and you can eat a few Oreos with it and not feel as guilty. Win – Win if you ask me!
