  • Summary

    Fettuccine Alfredo, with its ribbons of pasta coasted in a luxurious cheese sauce, is the very definition of decadent comfort. This recipe is all that—redefined. Zucchini ribbons mingle harmoniously with the noodles, allowing a big serving, healthfully. The sauce is made creamy with thickened milk but kept full flavored with plenty of real, fresh grated cheese.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium zucchini (about 8 ounces each)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 4 pieces thinly sliced skinless boneless chicken breast cutlets (1 pound total)
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 12 ounces fettuccine pasta, preferably whole wheat
    • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup cold low-fat (1%) milk
    • 1/2 cup evaporated skim milk (not condensed milk)
    • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
