Fettucini Alfredo

1 package of fettucini, cooked
2 tbsp margarine
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried basil
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 C 2% milk
1/4 C parmasan cheese
1/2 C light sour cream
salt and pepper to taste

Cook fettucini noodles as per box directions.
Melt margarine in saucepan under low heat. Crush garlic into the melted margarine (keep heat low so you don't burn the garlic). Add the parsley and basil. Mix well. Quickly stir in the flour to make a nice thick paste mixture. Add the milk and whisk/stir continuously as you raise the heat to a high-medium. Keep stirring as the sauce thickens. (Keep close so you don't burn the milk). Once the mixture has thickened stir in the parmasan cheese (mixture will be very thick at this point - don't worry). Stir in the sour cream (this will thin out the mixture a bit). Grate pepper and sprinkle salt over top to taste. Mix well.

Toss sauce into your noodles. Serve and enjoy!

Thank you, I like it because it tastes rich, but it's a lot lighter fat/calorie wise than my husband's recipe with cream and butter
