I love Italian food and was devastated when I was advised to go gluten-free to relieve my digestive discomfort. Determined to enjoy my favorite Italian flavors still, I created a healthy alfredo sauce I could enjoy on low-carb noodles such as spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles. This recipe is the result and only takes about 10 minutes to make and will hopefully become a staple in your healthy kitchen as it is in mine!

Why Youโ€™ll Love This Healthy Alfredo Sauce Recipe:

  • All the ingredients are easily digestible for a gentle tummy.
  • It only takes 10 minutes to make.
  • The simple ingredients are affordable and easy to find.
  • It tastes like a classic alfredo sauce with half the calories and twice the nutrition.

How Do You Make My Healthy Alfredo Sauce?

Step 1. Prep The Cheese

Everything tastes better with cheese, and this recipe is no exception. Grate 1 cup of parmesan cheese and set it aside to add to your sauce. Grated block cheese is preferred over pre-grated cheese because it will melt better into your sauce. The pre-grated cheeses are often coated with a powdery substance called cellulose, which also doesnโ€™t melt down.

Adding wet ingredients to muffin batter.

Step 2. Prep the Gralic

Another essential Italian flavor is fresh garlic! I like to use this stainless garlic press to crush 3 cloves of garlic

Step 3. Make the Alfredo Sauce

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Then dump in the fresh garlic and seasonings and prepare to be enthralled in the Italian aroma thatโ€™s about to fill your kitchen ๐Ÿ™‚ Stir gently until all the ingredients are combined.

Step 4. Add the Greek Yogurt

Turn the heat to low, add the Greek yogurt, and stir until combined. The Greek yogurt can curdle if it comes to a boil.

Step 5. Add the Cheese

Next, dump in 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese and mix until itโ€™s melted and combined.

Step 6. Thin the Sauce

You can leave the sauce on the thicker side or add 1 or 2 tablespoons of almond milk (or milk of choice) to thin the sauce. Stir until combined. Your sauce is now ready to enjoy!

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy!

Depending on your preference, you can pour the sauce over your noodles as you serve it, or premix the sauce with your noodles and then serve. I love to mix this sauce with spaghetti squash noodles and then serve it with pan-seared chicken.

    I made this recipe yesterday, yep and I figured out the reaction of greek yogurt to heat, low heat, extra butter and the dish was delish. I’ll make it again today, no fuss no muss.

      That is a great question! Yes, you can and it will turn out great! Just be sure to keep your heat low once you add the greek yogurt so it doesn’t curdle on you. It only has to be warm enough to melt the cheese and then it’s ready to serve ๐Ÿ™‚

      Great question! If the greek yogurt gets cooked at too high of a temperature, it will begin to curdle. If you warm the sauce just until the cheese melts, the greek yogurt will remain creamy ๐Ÿ™‚
