  1. 2 c. nonfat cottage cheese
  2. 3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese [i used a combo of fontina & parm]

  5. 2 Tbsp. butter-flavored granules
  6. 1/2 tsp dry basil

  9. 1 Tbsp. flour [i used about 1/2 Tablespoons flour & 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch] [optional: a few dribbles for flavor] [ maybe 1.5 t of extra virgin olive oil] [optional: i like "sauteing" onions and mushrooms in the pan before adding the Alfredo]


  1. (Yield: 2 3/4 c.)
  2. The only modification I have made is the addition of 1 Tbsp.
  3. of flour to the whole thing before blending.
  4. Also, make sure you only heat it sufficient to get it good and hot before serving.
  5. Otherwise, it wants to liquefy (that is why I added the flour).
  6. Combine all ingredients in container of an electric blender; process till smooth.
  7. Pour into a small saucepan; cook sauce over low heat, stirring constantly, till thoroughly heated.
  8. NOTES : I was so surprised to see which Reggie posted one of my favorite recipes from 1994!!
  9. Sure brings back memories for me.
  10. Back in November of 1994 I was 11 months into my very low fat lifestyle change that led to a weight loss of 140 lbs.
  11. Thanks to the fat free list which I started out with and then THIS list serve, I learned how to cook all over again and how to modify a lot of my own recipes.
  12. Anyhow...I noticed which the cottage cheese was missing from the recipe.
  13. Reggie and I exchanged emails and thanks to Reggie, here is the original posting from 1994 that includes additional modification suggestions from Alekz Traynor.
  14. I HAVE added cooked fresh mushrooms to this recipe and it is YUMMY!!
  16. Thanks Reggie!
