Recipe Review: Laughing Cow Alfredo Sauce

I have been meaning to make this sauce for a while, but I have never gotten around to it until now. I'm sad that it took me this long to make this recipe, because it is so good!! I tweaked the recipe a little bit and added salt and pepper. I also used the garlic and herb Laughing Cow cheese, which made this an incredibly flavorful sauce. It turned out way better than I thought it would. Jon enjoyed it too and said that I could make it again!

Ingredients

First, I added the milk and 6 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese to my saucepan.

Next, I added garlic (I did not have garlic powder, so I used minced garlic).

Finally, I added the Parmesan cheese and butter. I also added salt and pepper to the sauce as well.

Then, I put the saucepan on the burner to begin melting all my ingredients together

until the sauce is velvety smooth, about 20 minutes.

I put about 1/4 cup of the sauce on my noodles.

This recipe looks GREAT! I love Laughing Cow and I'm always looking for a way to make mac cheese/alfredo/etc "healthy". I shared the deliciousness on my own blog here: http://seektobemerry.blogspot.com/2013/01/brrrrr.html Thanks!!

I've been looking at this recipe for a week now. I even bought everything to make it last week but work was a little crazy. SO I finally made it tonight and it it delicious! This will be a regular in my diet.

I also wanted to tell you how inspiring I find your blog. Although I am not a Weight Watcher's member, I am working on being healthier again (not as a New Year's Resolution but as a conscious choice that has been a long time in the making). I have a long road ahead of me but I know I can do it. As silly as this may sound, I feel like I have you cheering me on! Thank you for taking the time to blog and good luck on your journey.

Excellent recipe!! The flavor is delicious! I used it on a gluten free pizza as the sauce to recreate but in a healthy way one of my favorite pizzas. Thanks for sharing!

is it 3 plus points for the sauce and the pasta????

Jennifer @ Living a Changed Life said...

Hi All, The recipe doesn't call for pasta. The sauce is 3 pointsplus by itself and the pasta is extra.

This was amazing! Not to mention easy, I'll be making this again and again and again....

jessie said...

This was amazing! I'll be making this A LOT.

I have made this twice and love it! I used unsweetened almond milk this time because that's all I had on hand, and it was still delicious! I would definitely recommend cooking it on a pretty low setting so it doesn't burn, and you can cut up the cheese wedges to make them melt faster.

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It's going to be one that I make often!

I'm new to your blog, but love it! I want to make this, and have some leftover pasta (red) sauce in the fridge. I thought of making half of your Laughing Cow alfredo, and adding some red sauce to it. What do you think? Thanks for the great recipes!
