Directions: How to Make Dreamy Low-Fat Fettuccine Alfredo

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. I sometimes use a ladle, fill each of four serving bowls with about 1/2 boiling water and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat until foaming. Whisk in the flour until mixture is smooth and golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk, half-and-half, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, pepper and nutmeg. Bring to a simmer.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Discard garlic, stir in Parmesan and remove from heat., Stir pasta and remaining salt into the boiling water and cook, stirring constantly, until al dente, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water, then drain pasta.

  5. Return sauce to low heat, add 1/3 cup pasta water and the cooked pasta. Toss until evenly coated. Cook until sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Add more water as needed to thin sauce to desired consistency and adjust seasonings.
