Pasta with Garlic Alfredo Sauce
I grew up addicted to Alfredo sauce and with this healthy, protein-filled, super low-fat and drastically lower sodium version, I can have it anytime! This recipe is just the pasta and sauce–I left it up to you to add in whatever beans, vegetables, soy products or meat you like (personally my favorite way to enjoy this is with oven-roasted veggies, but when I made this for friends last Friday, I paired it with some delicious turkey meatballs.)
