A healthy version of a classic Italian dish, this Linguine Alfredo is easy to make with tons of creamy delicious cheesy flavor. The perfect go-to for feeding the family or an easy meal weeknight meal for one!
I strive to eat well and feel good about what I eat. That’s one reason I have nutrition strategies, so that I am able to enjoy favorite foods without regret. Since pasta is a favorite food, I’ve got a strategy. I call it “health it up!”
To “health it up” simply means to make a dish more nutrient-dense. I do this by adding greens, healthy fats, herbs and spices, or vegetables to the recipe. It can be as simple as stirring sauteed kale and turmeric into chili or as fancy as adding reishi mushroom extract to my green smoothie. You decide how to health up your own meals!
My “health it up” strategy is not only great for feeling good about what you’re feeding yourself and your family, but also for getting the most nutrition bang out of your food. I love knowing that I’ve upped the nutrition ante a bit by applying this simple strategy to my meals.
I created this creamy and delicious Healthy Linguine Alfredo for the folks over at Dreamfields. I was thrilled to be able to health it up in two different ways. First, I was able to use this high fiber, high protein pasta. I cook a lot with the bean-based pastas and spiralized zucchini but sometimes you just want the real thing! Dreamfields is a line of pasta made with premium durum wheat semolina from North Dakota. The semolina gives it the familiar taste and texture of traditional pasta. This pasta is also quite filling. It has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per one cup of cooked pasta!
The creamy sauce for this Healthy Linguine Alfredo is my second healthy addition. It’s a lovely combination of steamed cauliflower and evaporated skim milk, along with some Parmesan cheese and spices for a ton of flavor. It’s the perfect weeknight meal when you’re craving something decadent and creamy! I hope you’ll try it.
Guess what? There’s more!
