    Ingredients

    For skinny fettuccini alfredo

    • 1 cup milk low fat or regular
    • 1 tbsp butter
    • 1 clove garlic minced
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 2 tspn flour
    • 8 oz Fettuccine dry, then cooked according to package directions

    For meatballs

    • 1 lb ground beef
    • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs or just regular breadcrumbs
    • 1/2 onion finely chopped
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 tspn garlic salt

    Instructions

    • Combine all the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl.
    • Pinch a small lump of meat and form a ball using your hands. When all the meatballs have been shaped, fry them on medium- high in about 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan until golden brown in color on both sides. Transfer meatballs to the plate( they will be still raw in the middle)
    • To the same pan add minced garlic and butter and let it cook for a minute. Add in the flour and cook, stirring ,for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and cook, whisking constantly, until just thickened, for couple minutes.
    • Add meatballs back in to the pan and cook on low for about 7 minutes.
      Add cooked fettuccine and stir carefully.
    • Divide among bowls and top with parmesan, chopped cilantro and pepper.

    Notes

    For the meat you also can use turkey, pork, chicken... I like combination of beef and turkey. Instead of bread crumbs you can use a single piece of sliced bread soaked in milk
