Quick Alfredo Sauce

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cook Time: 11 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

This is my take on a quick alfredo sauce. Using herbed Alouette cheese, this comes together in no time. Serve with your favorite pasta.


  • 2 tablespoons I can’t believe it’s not butter
  • 1/4 cup self rising flour
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons Alouette garlic and herb spreadable cheese
  • 1/4 cup good shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper


    Cook pasta and set aside. In a stock pot, melt the butter, add the flour and cook
    for one minute. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. This takes about 6

    Remove from heat, stir in the Alouette cheese, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg and crushed red
    pepper. Taste for seasoning, I thought the saltiness from the Parmesan was enough.

    Stir in cooked pasta. I served my bowl with fresh chopped spinach.

On team purple on WW, whole grain pastas are zero points.  It’s a running joke at our house – my son-in-law will ask me how many points something is and I’m like “zero!”  With over 300 “zero” foods, there are a lot of choices!  So I’ve been coming up with recipes using as many zero point foods as I can, but still tasting amazing.

Alouette cheese is my go to cheese for spreads and sauces – I count it as 1 point each tablespoon.

This was my first time using brown rice pasta, and I absolutely loved it.  There is a trick I think to cooking “alternative” pastas though.  They go from being perfect al dente, so mushy in the blink of an eye.  The package instructions said to cook for 15-16 minutes, but at 11 minutes I tested it and it was perfect.  I had an ice bath ready to stop the cooking process, knowing I was going to add the pasta to the hot cheese sauce.

This is literally a 15 minute recipe.  Not only is it perfect as a side dish, but pair it with some grilled chicken or shrimp and you’ve got yourself a low point dinner.

I’ve been using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in roux’s to bring the points down and you’ll be hard pressed to miss the real butter in this recipe.  You just need to cook the butter/flour mixture for a minute before adding the almond milk.

I scored on some really really good parmesan cheese at Mariano’s.  Just 1/4 cup to this recipe brings out the saltiness and cheezy goodness of the Alouette.

One of the mistakes I made early on in my cooking process was 1) not reading a recipe all the way through to see if I had everything and 2) trying to speed up the process.  I used to melt butter, add flour and then pour in ALL the liquid when making a roux and wondered why it never turned out or two four times as long as it should.  Be patient.  I only add 1/4 cup of the almond milk at a time and you’ll be rewarded with this cheezy sauce in no time.

This makes a lot of sauce and you may think you have too much sauce to the ratio of the cooked pasta, but trust me, this works.

I have already eaten this mac n cheese as a leftover, and the pasta stayed together and not mushy at all.

I added some chopped spinach to my bowl.  So, so good!

Not sure why my recipe popped to the top, but you’re welcome!


Not only is this recipe perfect as a side dish, but pair it with some grilled chicken or shrimp and you’ve got yourself a low point dinner. This sauce can be made for pasta or an alfredo pizza! Weight Watchers | 15 Minute Dinner | Alouette Cheese
