Just say the word alfredo and my mouth will water worse than a teething baby; and my butt will grow. I can’t help but overindulge on it and make myself sick. Jake always says that it’s just too heavy and makes his belly fully. Well, duh, because it’s good food. So he asked me to try and come up with a lighter version of it. Excuse me? We both have Italian in us and you want me to tone down a dish and make it with less calories and lighter? Pff, nope, can’t be done! I don’t even want to dare try because that is just an insult to our heritage.
Well, I tried and came up with something delicious. It still has a rich and creamy flavor to it but you don’t feel like you have a brick in your stomach after you eat. Still not sure if I should be proud or ashamed. Maybe a little of both? You can tell me after you make it for yourself.
