Valentine's Day may be in just a few days but I'm willing to bet a lot of peeps are feeling a little uninspired this year. Between quarantine, new nasty covid strains, waiting (and waiting and waiting) for a vaccine, the general state of the world, and a serious lack of restaurant options (totally understandable but still sucks), a lot of you might just be thinking "meh let's skip it". But hold up! I have a solution: done in less than 30 minutes, and lower on the calories, this date night mushroom fettuccine alfredo is the perfect dish for this weekend!
Especially this year, I think it's still important to do something, to celebrate every little thing that brings you even the tiniest bit of joy. For me, that happens to be food. So I'm going to take advantage of pretty much every holiday this year, including the Hallmark created ones 🤣.
So how to celebrate Valentine's Day? With a festive beverage and a plate of date night mushroom fettuccine alfredo of course!
Did you catch that lower on the calories statement? Just like my creamy skinny fettuccine recipe, this pasta recipe is guilt free! Instead of a cream based sauce or super heavy on the butter, this version uses vegetable broth and skim milk with a little bit of butter, parmesan cheese, and flour to help thicken it up. And you can't even tell the difference!
Better than take out pasta? Done and done, grab the recipe below 🍝.Print
