Butternut Squash Fettucine Alfredo Recipe

Carolann blogs regularly over at Sassy Townhouse Living. This post was originally featured there. 

When it comes to fettuccine, we are all about it. But with a creamy and delicious Alfredo sauce, it’s not the healthiest choice when it comes to pasta dishes. I’ve even tried to add broccoli to my Fettuccine Alfredo, thinking that would help but as we all know – as amazing as it was – it’s still a decadent dish! Once I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try this dish. It’s a healthier alternative to regular Fettucine Alfredo, despite still being high in calories and carbohydrates.

So, if you love fettuccine this is a great alternative. Butternut squash adds the creamy without the cream, and brings a pop of color and delicious veggies to this recipe. Plus, you get a pinch of sweetness as well. And yes, it’s just a pinch so no worries.
