|Try this lightened version of Alfredo sauce for a quick and easy pasta meal.|
Fill pot with water, add 1 t salt, cover, and bring to a boil.
Cook the pasta:
Stir in the peas, turn off heat, and let stand for 1 minute, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat oil over medium-high heat, add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Add milk, ½ t salt, and nutmeg and stir until it starts to simmer. Reduce heat and continue simmering for 5 minutes.
When the sauce is ready, stir in the pasta and peas. Remove from heat, stir in cheese, and serve.
|Notes||This sauce is a lighter, healthier version of Alfredo sauce which is thicker and much richer.
Adapted from the recipe for “Creamy linguine with garlic, peas, and nutmeg” in 15-Minute Vegetarian (read my review).
