    So I made this last night on a whim....I think I'm a genius but maybe it's been done already....Regardless it's AMAZEBALLS!

    Skinny Alfredo

    1 Cup Fat Free Cottage Cheese
    Clove of Garlic
    1 Cup diced sweet onion
    1 teaspoon coconut oil
    Salt and Pepper
    Small amount of Organic chicken broth
    1 package Shirataki Tofu Noodles prepared as directed

    I sauteed the onion and garlic together in the coconut oil until almost carmelized and then used a hand blender on the cottage cheese with a slight amount of chicken stock until it was a smooth sauce. Added it to the sauteed vegetables until warmed up and then poured onto the Tofu noodles.

    Discovered this sauce is really good on top of steamed cauliflower and tastes amazing with a tablespoon of pesto also!
    Try it!!

    That is not even close to Alfredo sauce. Butter, garlic, Parmesan cheese. That's Alfredo sauce.

    It tastes LIKE alfredo....obviously it'd be difficult to keep it skinny with the butter in the recipe. Your powers of obsevation astound me

    I was just giving another option to try and it only uses 1/2 T. or you can leave the butter out if you can't stand 1/2 T. I thought this was something to share and I got it from a weight watcher leader. Sorry to steal a little of your thunder......this is a site to help each other.

    They are little wedges of cheese found in the cooler section at the grocery store. Over where you'd find cottage cheese and pre package cheeses.
