Though not as healthy as using tomato sauce, using half and half instead of heavy cream and some smart balance instead of all butter does eliminate some of fat. Not a good meal to have all the time, but its a sweet treat!
Pour this sauce over any pasta you have on hand, I love Alfredo Sauce with gnocchi, but we all have our faves. Steamed broccoli, asparagus, or green beans would make nice healthy additions.
