For the third day, I again chose a really simple sauce to go with my low carb egg pasta. When I was checking recipes for Alfredo sauce, every recipe I read used 100 gm of butter and 500 ml of cream along with 2 cups of cheese. In the last year one thing I learnt was not to make anything in bulk. If I make that huge batch of sauce, I would never know how much I would eat and out goes my diet. Nothing goes into the pan without weighing or measuring so that I can keep track of what I eat.So I decided to make my version of the sauce with available ingredients and for just one serving.
This sauce is so easy to make and it tastes like it is made only of cheese. And it is so rich that I couldn’t eat the portion. Me and daughter shared it between us. This recipe uses amul cheese cube and amul cream as the base. I have also used my home made cream cheese in the recipe, but feel free to use store bought cheese.
Before starting with the sauce, make your pasta. If you are making low carb pasta, do follow the recipe, or you can use normal pasta or spaghetti. Boil and strain them in advance before starting. The whole sauce recipe takes just five minutes from start to finish. So if the pasta is ready, then you can mix and serve immediately. Feel free to use any spice or herb you like. This is a versatile recipe. You can even add meat or paneer along with the pasta for a really filling meal.
