Creamy Alfredo Sauce

Recipe provided by Strive for Wellness®

Servings: 10 (Size: ¼ cup)


½ small shallot, minced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup unsalted chicken stock
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt, room temperature
1 tablespoon corn starch, divided (2 teaspoon and 1 teaspoon)
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Wisk together 2 teaspoons corn starch with the chicken stock until fully blended without clumps. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 teaspoon corn starch with the Greek yogurt until fully blended. Set aside.
  3. Preheat saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, garlic and shallot and sauté until fragrant.
  4. Add chicken stock mixture and black pepper to the sauce pan. Stir frequently while the stock thickens and comes to a simmer.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Gradually temper the Greek yogurt with the stock by adding a very small amount of stock to the Greek yogurt and whisking together. Continue to do this until the yogurt is warm.
  6. Pour the yogurt mixture into the saucepan and stir over medium-low heat.
  7. Once the sauce has reheated, add the parmesan cheese. Gradually stir until the cheese has melted.
  8. Allow the sauce to sit over low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  9. Top your favorite pasta dish.
  10. Tip: Sauce is best when served fresh.
