80--- Almost Alfredo Sauce

Thank you Christina for the "80-fy my recipe" comment! This white sauce is "almost alfredo" (shown here with whole wheat penne). The chicken broth really adds that flavor that is often missing from low-cal alfredo recipes.

Almost Alfredo Sauce
Serves 8

1 Tbsp olive oil

3 cloves garlic, pressed and finely minced

2 cups skim milk

1 cup chicken broth

3 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden brown.

In a separate saucepan, stir together milk, chicken broth, flour, salt and pepper over low heat until smooth and thick. Stir into garlic. Continue to cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thick. Stir in Parmesan cheese.
