A lot of "bad-for-you".
Only 110 calories and five grams of saturated fat; doesn't sound bad on the surface; however, that's for a tiny quarter-cup serving.
Double the serving to a more-realistic half-cup of sauce over the average serving size of two cups of pasta and the damage comes into focus:
- 19 grams of total fat (ten of which are bad for your heart)
- more than a third of a day's sodium
Make it Heart Healthy
Try making your own Alfredo using Land O Lakes rich-tasting Fat Free Half and Half.
Homemade Alfredo Sauce
Melt a tablespoon of tub butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in a tablespoon of all-purpose flour until smooth and bubbly.
Gradually stir in a half-cup of the fat free half and half and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture thickens. Toss in some crushed garlic and fresh parsley, sprinkle with a little Parmesan, and you've got your own heart-healthy Classico.
