A creamy cajun alfredo sauce that comes together in minutes and topped with pulled pork is a quick and healthy dinner!
My mind is playing mean, mean tricks on me.
“Hey there little thing. How is that wedding diet coming along?”
Fabulous, thanks for asking! Salads and veggies are so delicious. I just can’t get enough.
“Righhhtttttt. Well, let’s throw a curveball in there. How about a huge, carb loaded bowl of pasta? Sounds scrumptious, huh?”
WAIT! Before you run off , if you haven’t already, because you came to the realization that I am slightly ‘out there’ and talk to myself, I pinky swear this is a winner. Like winner, winner chicken dinner!
Pasta. Oh pasta why are you so freakin delicious, comforting and sooooo not bathing suit friendly?! Why can’t we all just live in a make believe world where calories don’t exist and unicorns run free? Is that so hard to ask for?
Now what is believable andddd is swimsuit friendly is this Cajun Alfredo Skillet! I even dare to say it’s purdy darn healthy for you as well. With a few switch-a-roos, I have said see ya to the fattening sauce, and pumped up the protein and fiber content, all will giving you some insane cheesey goodness.
The secret here is cottage cheese. Yes, you read that right. A sauce of almond milk and cottage cheese replicates the creamy texture that heavy cream usually provides. And what is alfredo without cheese? Gimme all the cheese! Shredded, salty and ultra silky fontina is melted into the sauce and a touch of garlic and cajun seasonings are blended in to add a punch. Whoa…creamy and spicy all in one bite.
One bit and I am in love. L.O.V.E. I’m pretty addicted and I’m not sharing. Not yet, at least.
