Guilt-free Fettuccine Alfredo
Every once in a while I like to get my Fettuccine Alfredo fix. I very rarely order it when my husband and I eat out in restaurants because I know the regular variety is loaded with calories and fat, so this recipe is a great solution.
Not only is it delicious, it is also relatively low in fat since I make it with low fat or no fat ingredients. It doesn’t have to have a lot of heavy cream and high-fat cheese to be delicious. This is a nicely balanced option. I hope you enjoy it!
My little kittens–Alex and Ashlee are continuing to grow like weeds! I can’t believe how big they are getting. So I thought I’d share a few baby-pics while I still can. 🙂 You’ll find them here.
Makes approx. 6-7 servings.
Here’s what you’ll need:
18 oz fresh fettuccini
2 tbsp butter
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups low-fat milk
2 tbsp flour
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp low-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup low-fat or fat-free sour cream
1 cup frozen peas
Pinch of nutmeg
3 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
Adapted from the Looneyspoons recipe for Eenie Meenie Fettuccine.

HISTORY OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR IN 1908 OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”, NOW SERVED BY THE GRANDCHILDREN, ALFREDO E ISA DI LELIO, AT THE RESTAURANT “IL VERO ALFREDO” IN ROME, PIAZZA AUGUSTO IMPERATORE 30
With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in a street in central Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina. In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”.
In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 “Il Vero Alfredo” (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery”” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).

We must clarify that other restaurants “Alfredo” in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of “Il Vero Alfredo” in Rome.
We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
