You never had a Fettuccine Alfredo like that

Our version brings all classic flavors without the thick cream or excess butter.

Alfredo di Lelio invented this emblematic dish At his Trattoria in Rome in 1914. At the time, the dish was nothing more than the hot fettuccine thrown with butter and parmesan cheese. Fetuccine Alfredo went through the Atlantic, picking up a sea of ​​thick cream along the way. Now it's a base on chain restaurant menus everywhere, especially because it costs nothing to charge a bowl with 1,200 calories of fatty and refined carbohydrates. To mitigate the impact of Alfredo, we turn to our old friend Béchamel, who creates aThick and creamy sauce Without the calories of the thick cream and excess butter.
