Although we never think of the words Alfredo and light in the same sentence, this is a great new sauce to try. If you just must have creamy white sauce on your controlled portion of whole-grain pasta, this is the one to grab. Classico has an array of choices of Alfredo sauce and let's face it, they're exactly what you might expect- loaded with calories and fat. The new Light Alfredo is half the fat and nearly half the calories of regular Alfredo. One 1/4 cup serving is 60 calories, 5 g fat, 3 g carbs and 1 protein. The full-fat variety is 100 calories and 9 g fat. WOWZA!
Of course the Light variety is not as rich and creamy as it's chubby sibling, but it's enough of the same flavor that you'll still feel like it's splurging. Our tip to bring out the best in this sauce is to add a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano cheese and a pinch of white pepper. Flavorful, indulgent and within our PointsPlus program.
